The catalogue of Johann Sebastian Bach’s works comprises 1128 numbers. However, he actually composed more than that. Many compositions have, unfortunately, not survived to the present day. Some works, moreover, have reached us incomplete, either because the composer himself did not finish them or because part of the manuscript has been lost.
In this recording, Lorenzo Ghielmi has taken on the challenging task of completing Bach’s organ works that have reached us as fragments. While he recognizes the inimitable nature of such a supreme artist, he has strived to stay true to Bach’s style. Through this endeavor, Ghielmi offers us the possibility to explore largely forgotten pages of Bach’s musical legacy and experience the magic of these incomplete compositions brought to life.
