Sweelinck's fantasias belong to the most ornate and elaborate contrapuntal genre of early 17th-century keyboard music. Moreover, these 20 masterful works also form the undisputed climax of this genre. The four-volume edition of Sweelinck's "Complete Works for Keyboard Instruments" by Harald Vogel and Pieter Dirksen - which has universally won plaudits for its exemplary editorial quality - comes to a glorious conclusion with the volume of fantasias. The comments of the two Sweelinck experts also contribute to establishing the outstanding quality of the "practical source edition" which retains the special characteristics of the notation as much as possible. The volume also contains an essay by Pieter Dirksen in which he treats the important topic of the instruments in a comprehensive manner and gives the user indispensable information on this central work group.
