For the first time Matthias Weckmann's complete organ works have now been recorded on instruments from the early 17th century and thus on truly appropriate organs. The choice of the Stellwagen organ in the Jakobikirche in Lübeck and the Scherer organ in the Stephanuskirche in Tangermünde make this recording a real highlight - of course as Super Audio CDs in stereo and surround sound...

Léon Berben has chosen to play two of the most famous early baroque organs in Germany for his complete recording (double SACD) of all organ works by Matthias Weckmann: the Hans Scherer organ (1624) in the Stephanuskirche in Tangermünde and the Friedrich Stellwagen organ (1636) in the Jakobikirche in Lübeck. Both instruments are wonderfully preserved and have been restored in an exemplary manner. They are stylistically ideally suited to the organ works of Heinrich Schütz' pupil Matthias Weckmann. Léon Berben once again bears witness to his profound knowledge of early baroque playing techniques and ornamentation and elicits authentic sounds from a bygone era. The colourfulness of his art of registration makes the works sound as if they were performed by a baroque instrumental ensemble.
