If you can get this CD, it is one of the finest recordings of the great Dutch organist, Ton Koopman. Koopman breaths life into the brief BWV 549, and his interpretation of the enormous BWV 546 is legendary. For those who think you must break up a large work such as the 546 on different manuals to make it interesting, Koopman proves you wrong. It is the perfect program, with two three-movement works sandwiched between two chorales and Preludes and Fugues. The A-minor concerto is a bit hurried, but Koopman takes some liberty but makes it sound truly Italian. All the organ's resources are used thoroughly. If you can find this CD, it is one of the best!

I agree with the oppinion above. It is one of the finest recordings of Ton Koopman. Especially Preludes BWV549 & 546 and... Concerto BWV593 are amazing. Registration in Concerto BWV593 is simply beautiful. I have never heard a better recording of this Concerto.
