Synopsis[edit]

Jakob Hassler (1569-1622) was an organist and composer. He "became chamber organist to Christopher Fugger. Together with his brothers he was ennobled by Emperor Rudolf II in 1595.....In 1596 he obtained a new post, that of court organist to Count Eitelfriedrich IV von Hohenzollern in Hechingen".....and "imperial court organist in Prague." "While his highly prestigious organist appointments offer ample testimony to the esteem accorded his talents by contemporaries, only a handful of compositions bearing attributions to him have survived in keyboard sources; several of these appear to be transcriptions of works originally composed for instrumental ensemble. Although Jakob's Toccata di Quarto tono displays affinities with Venetian prototypes, it is unique for the period in its employment of a two-part free-imitative design."[1]
