David Goode continues his series of the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach, played on the Metzler Söhne organ of Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge.
Bach and the Organ: The organ loomed large from early on in Bach’s life. The foundations of his multifaceted career as a professional musician were clearly laid in the careful cultivation of Bach’s prodigious talent as an organist whilst he was still a child. Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach in 1685, and after the death of his father—the director of municipal music in the town—at the age of ten moved to Ohrdruf, where he was taken in by his eldest brother, Johann Christoph. Christoph was the organist at St Michael’s Ohrdruf and had been taught by Pachelbel. During his years at Ohrdruf, the young Sebastian was a choral scholar and likely had his first experiences in organ building and maintenance. In 1700 he moved to Lüneburg, as a choral scholar at St Michael’s School; this move brought him into the orbit of many organists, including Georg Böhm and Adam Reinken in Hamburg. 1703 found him examining a new organ at the New Church in Arnstadt, where he was appointed as organist in August of that year, remaining for four years, his first major professional organist post. Clearly showing remarkable talent as a player from an early age, Bach’s career remained founded upon the organ even as he moved around in a variety of posts after leaving Arnstadt in 1707: as the organist of St Blasius’s in Mühlhausen (1707–1708), court organist and chamber musician at Weimar (1708–1717), capellmeister at Cöthen (1717–1723) and cantor at St Thomas’ Church in Leipzig (1723–1750).
David Goode, organ
has been Organist and Head of Keyboard at Eton College since 2005. He was a music scholar at Eton, and then organ scholar at King’s College, Cambridge from 1991-4, studying organ with David Sanger and, in Amsterdam, with Jacques van Oortmerssen. From 1996-2001 he was Sub-Organist at Christ Church, Oxford; following prizes at the 1997 St. Alban’s Competition, and the 1998 Calgary Competition, he concentrated on a freelance career between 2001 and 2003. In 2003 he moved for 2 years to Los Angeles as Organist-in-Residence at First Congregational Church, home to the world’s largest church organ. He made his Royal Festival Hall debut in 2002, and played Bach’s Art of Fugue in the QEH in 2009. In 1999 he made the first of numerous appearances at the Proms, inluding a solo recital in 2006; in recent years he has played all over Europe and the US. He has an established duo partnership with the trumpeter Alison Balsom, with recent concerts including the Moscow Arts, Three Choirs, and Passau Festivals. His CD releases since 1994 (from Cambridge, Oxford, Los Angeles, Eton, and most recently Freiberg for Signum Records) have received excellent reviews; he has also forged a strong relationship on Radio 3 with the BBCNOW and the BBC Singers. Volume 1 of his series of the Complete Organ Music of Max Reger was widely praised; he has also played numerous contemporary works, including Francis Pott’s Christus (a performance described by The Times as ‘a stupendous achievement’). He is currently recording the complete organ works of Bach on the organ of Trinity College, Cambridge.
