Bach, J.S. / Videro: Retrospective in Four Volumes 3
Title: Retrospective in Four Volumes 3
Label: Danacord Records

This release is the third volume in the retrospective series featuring Finn Videro, the finest Danish organist of all time. When the four LP records were released worldwide with Videro playing the organ music of Buxtehude they won the Grand Prix du Disque and lifted Buxtehude playing to a new level that few since have reached. These recordings have been digitally remastered and presented here. Viderø was born in Fuglebjerg, Næstved. He was the organist at the Reformed Church in Copenhagen from 1928 to 1941, the Jægersborg Church from 1942 to 1947, the Trinitatis Church in Copenhagen from 1947 to 1971 and St. Andreas Church in Copenhagen from 1971 to 1977. He was guest lecturer at Yale University and held an honorary doctorate from the University of Åbo in Finland. In 1933, he co-published with Oluf Ring a widely used organ primer. His organ playing was uncompromising and many believed that Viderø's musical interpretations were as close to the authentic, artistic and historical representation intended by the composer as one could get.
