BACH Complete Organ Works
Volume 1-10 PIETER VAN DIJK
With the release of the 10th album, the series BACH Complete Organ Works PIETER VAN DIJK reaches its completion! We proudly present you not only the final album, but also the complete box, consisting of 21 CDs, good for more than 28 hours of music.
The number 21 has great symbolic value, which is very appropriate for Bach, whose music is full of number symbolism. 21 is 3 times 7, both numbers that indicate unity and fullness and can often be found in Bach’s music. Moreover, 2 plus 1 also equals 3. And let’s not forget that the great master was born on the 21st of the 3rd month in 1685.
This makes it the most complete Bach organ works ever, including the early versions of the Leipziger Choräle and Die Kunst der Fuge. That makes this box unique in many ways!
After the sound check follows the most important part of the recording, the recording production. By giving feedback during several takes, I stimulate musicians to get the best from themselves.
A recording is a route. Planning, the choice of a recording location and instrument are just some aspects of the entire process. Every recording is different; studio, live, or radio.
Editing is the art to choice the most musical one from an ocean of takes. Together with the musicians
we judge the first editing during correction sessions. The end master is the result of this process.
Mastering looks like cooking. By mixing all ingredients, and seasoning the dish, the final balance and sound colour can be decided.
With the Canon EOS 5D I capture the musical moments visually. Focused on the expression of the artist or matching with the program.
Artwork is a creative design, in which the image tells something about the music and the artist. In this way the customer is made curious.
From one single end master to a larger amount of copies.
