Nathan Laube: Bach's Clavier-Übung III

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Virtuosic American organist Nathan Laube presents music by Bach at his best.

JS Bach’s keyboard works include the four volumes of the Clavierübung – the third of which is his monumental Organ Mass, containing some of his finest, most versatile music for organ.

The composer said this was ‘prepared for music-lovers and particularly for connoisseurs of such work, for the recreation of the spirit’.

In this closely knit collection of pieces, framed by the colossal Prelude and Fugue in E flat, the composer journeys through a finely-wrought musical spectrum of counterpoint, scintillating trios, and his famous striding ‘Giant’ fugue.

Nathan Laube has rapidly earned a place among the organ world's elite performers. This evening, hear him take on the challenge of this exceptional treasury of organ music.
