Composer: Ritter, August Gottfried
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Kampen, Bovenkerk Hinsz/F.C. Schnitger
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
This is one of the most important German romantic organ Sonatas after Mendelssohn, dedicated to Franz Liszt.
The form is Quasi una Fantasia with the elements:
- Sonata - episodes,
- Recitativo,
- Cantilene,
- Choral,
- Variations,
- symphonic Fugue,
- Toccata - Final.
Ritter had a modified baroque organ in the Magdeburg cathedral at the time when he has composed his four organ Sonatas. So we have the curious situation: Romantic Sonatas written for a baroque instrument.
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
