Helmut Walcha was the great German organist of the ’50s and ’60s. He recorded the more of less complete Bach organ works twice for DG, once in mono and then again in stereo. This boxset represents his sober but intensely musical style at its very best. Walcha was not one to draw attention to his physical infirmities, but the fact that he was blind really does seem to give some of his performances an extra spiritual dimension.

If you’re looking for the greatest Bach organ performance on record – look no further – you’ve found it. These interpretations by the blind mystic, Helmut Walcha, are literally out-of-this-world, transcendent. His Toccata and Fugue in D Minor maybe the premier tour de force solo on any instrument in classical music. Not to say there have not been other fantastic Bach organ recitals – Albert Schweitzer and E. Power Biggs were no wimps. But the exalted, otherworldly quality of Walcha’s playing has, in my opinion, never been equalled, and evokes in the listener a feeling of the deepest reverence.

If you love Bach Organworks then you MUST add this recording to your collection.
