Partita diverse sopra "O Gott, du frommer Gott" ("O God, thou O righteous God") for organ, BWV 767

In this video, the German organist, conductor, and choirmaster Karl Richter (1926–1981) plays an early chorale partita (a set of organ variations on a traditional chorale) by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750). The work is believed to date to the period 1701–1705, when Bach was in his late teens. After introducing the theme, it builds steadily over the course of six variations, reaching a moment of highly expressive and chromatic four-voice polyphony in the seventh, and resolving into a bright presto finale that wraps up the eighth and final variation.
