Jacob Fuhrman -Harpsichord- Suites & Variations from Buxtehude, Böhm, & Bach

J.S. Bach used two basic methods to build large pieces from sets of smaller ones: the dance suite and variation set. This program aims to set works of Bach in both of these genres alongside works that were likely his models, as both Georg Böhm and Dietrich Buxtehude were major influences on the young Bach.

Jacob Fuhrman is Organist and Director of Music at the Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah, Georgia. He holds degrees in organ performance from Wheaton College, IL (BM, 2012) and the Eastman School of Music (MM, 2014; DMA, 2019). He has served on the faculties of the State University of New York at Geneseo and Georgia Southern University, and in various roles with the American Guild of Organists and Organ Historical Society. His research considers historical approaches to organ accompaniment of congregational singing in England and the Netherlands.
