Bach’s Missing Pages: An Expanded Orgelbüchlein

In seven thirty-minute films Sietze de Vries performs the entire Orgelbüchlein, demonstrates the organs at the Martinikerk in Groningen and the Petruskerk in Leens, improvises 45 new chorale preludes in the style of Bach, discusses the philosophy of improvisation, and demonstrates how to improvise according to the techniques Bach uses in his great collection of chorale preludes. For the first time on film we can glimpse the enormous scale of Bach’s vision for his Orgelbüchlein.
