History of the Organ, Vol. 2: From Sweelinck to Bach
As the title implies, this nonfiction program surveys the history of the organ as a musical instrument over the course of the 17th and 18th centuries, as it passed through the hands of such earthshaking composers as Jan Pieterszoon Swielinck, Dietrich Buxtehude, and, ultimately, Johann Sebastian Bach. The film touches on the process necessary to build such an instrument, the evolution of the sound itself, and various pieces of music authored for the organ over the said period. It also includes footage of the locales in which the earliest-constructed organs now reside. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
