The nice thing of my publication efforts is that I get to know many compositions and composers that were previously unknown to me. Saxer is one of those composers I had never heard before. Yet the few works by his hands that survive are great works to play. The e minor Prelude is a very nice example of the Stylus Fantasticus. I play it very free in tempo, because I think that is what this piece asks for. Also, the acoustics of the church influenced my performance as well. Some of the pauzes I take, are meant to let the sound roll through the room, before I play the next chord or passage. It's not only playing ín the church room, it's also playing wíth the church room.
