Description: The combination of organ and violin goes back to the Baroque era. Many sonatas for violin and basso continuo can be executed just as well on the organ as on the harpsichord, sometimes even more colorfully than with harpsichord accompaniment. It was this tradition that Henri Marteau followed when he wrote his Fantasia for organ and violin op. 27, the largest work here at 24 minutes and recorded here for the first time. Edgar Krapp (organ), Ingolf Turban (violin).
