HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Eterna) Johan Sebastian Bach – Edward Power Biggs at the Schuke Organ of the Thomas Church in Leipzig

Bach reigns supreme on the organ, without question. Lovers of music, even lovers specifically of organ music, often have trouble naming any composer of organ music except J.S. Bach. His mastery is undeniable, his legacy amazing, his influence immeasurable. All of his organ works are technical marvels but can also hold deep emotional resonance. The works recorded here are some of the most famous of Bach’s: the Passacaglia and fugue, the “Great” prelude and fugue in g, the C Major prelude and fugue, and of course the Toccata and Fugue in d minor. This recording presents material which makes a great introduction to Bach’s organ music (which it was for me, several years ago) – but don’t be fooled: even if you have much experience with this kind of music the performances recorded here are worth hearing. I happen to think that Biggs is one of the greatest organists of our century, and this recording will tell you why.
