Simon Preston plays the Organ Concertos BWV 592-596 on the organ of the Lübeck (Luebeck) Cathedral.

What a joy this record is. Preston plays with an energy and a virtuosity that is just wonderful to hear. I was always a fan of Peter Hurford's performances in the Complete Organ Works Set, but Preston plays these works with flair and drive.
