Organ Sonatas 5,6 + Prelude & Fugues 1-3 - Mendelssohn (works with vitality, melody & unity - VICS 1572)

£5.99

Product description

The two sonatas, and three Prelude & Fugues on this album, are played by Philip Dore, an organ scholar of Queen's College, Cambridge.

Felix Mendelssohn's Fifth Organ Sonata opens with a Chorale, which appears to be Mendelssohn's own. Originally, the Fifth had an extra middle movement, but Mendelssohn withdrew it, at proof stage. The final movement, on the finished Fifth Sonata, is an Allegro maestoso, which has both vitality and melodic interest.
Side One : Sonata No.5 in D Op.65/5 , by Mendelssohn :-
1) I Andante-Andante con moto 2) II Allegro maestoso

One of the most notable features of the Sixth Sonata, is its sense of unity, a far cry from the varied characteristics of Mendelssohn's First Sonata, on the accompanying album, in this two-part series : A set of Variations upon the Chorale "Vater unser" is followed by a simple but very expressive Fugue on the first phrase of the Chorale. The work ends with a quite beautiful Andante in the tonic major.
Side One : Sonata No.6 in D minor Op.65/6 , by Mendelssohn :-
3) I Choral - Andante sostenuto 4) II Allegro molto 5) III Fuga : Sostenuto e legato 6) IV Andante

All three Prelude & Fugues were composed in 1837, and dedicated to the organist of St Paul's Cathedral, Thomas Attwood. The first contains a vigorous flow of an 12-8 Fugue, which is exciting. The second in G major, includes a charming Pastorale-like Prelude, combined with a severely ecclesiastical Fugue. The third Prelude & Fugue is very firm, closely knit and purposeful, with the subject matter of the Prelude anticipating the subject of the Fugue.
Side Two : Preludes and Fugues 1-3 , by Mendelssohn :-
1) P & F No.1 in C minor Op.37/1. 2) P & F No.2 in G Op.37/2. 3) P & F No.3 in D minor Op.37/3.
