During his long residence in Leipzig, Bach only rarely undertook the organist's duties at church services, and consequently composed significantly fewer organ works than previously. Most of the pieces in the collection of 18 compositions known as the "Leipzig Chorales” date from an earlier period, but were prepared for publication in Leipzig. The chorale beginning "Allein Gott...” - which is the German-language Gloria in the Lutheran liturgy - is the work of Bach's subject to the most freq...uent and varied adaptations.
Having completed his studies in Budapest, Antwerp and Munich, Miklós Spányi took up a career performing across most of Europe as a soloist on four instruments (harpsichord, organ, clavichord and fortepiano) and as a continuo accompanist for various ensembles. Between 1990 and 2012, he taught organ and early keyboard instruments at the conservatory in the Finnish city of Oulu. He currently resides in Germany, where he teaches at Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts, and also holds teaching posts at Budapest's Academy of Music and the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
Additional programmes will spice up the event in the Glass Hall and the Foyer; for example, the Bach Café and Bach Organ-workshop.
