Abt Georg Vogler (1749 1814) was a unusual and atypic musician.  He was organist and Kappelmeister in several great courts.  Mozart couldn't bare him.  He travelled through the entire Europe, lived during a few years in Sweden, started three music schools (Weber and Meyerbeer were his students) and made built for his own use what appears to be the first harmonium of History.  He published countless works of all kind and didactic treatises in which he exposed original theories, much criticized by his colleagues.  His ideas about the organ were nearly one hundred years in advance on their time.
 
These Thirty-two Preludes for organ or piano forte of 1806 constitute one of both his volumes for organ, written in an uncommon style in every ordinary key, with two pieces per each one.  Despite the title, Vogler first designed the volume for the organ (manual compass, a few simpe notes for the Pedals).  First modern reissue.
