Of all instruments of musical expression Bach preferred the organ. At the time when he was employed as court organist and chamber musician to Duke Wilhelm Ernst in Weimar, Bach had to perform on the organ a great deal. He prepared a repertory for those performances which includes some of his greatest works as for instance: Fantasia & Fugue in G minor (The Great) Passacaglia in C minor, Prelude and Fugue in C Minor, 8 Little Preludes & Fugues and the wonderful Orgelbuechlein. Most of his organ works date from around 1708 to 1717, through the “Little” fugue in G minor was composed in 1700. This volume contains various Choral Preludes and a composition called 4 Duets. A “Duet” really means 2 part music, and not music for Clavier 4 hands.
