    Comments:Kevin Edelvang said:

    This is a modern example of how Bach can be played. W. Rubsam is a young and lifefull intepretor of this greatest organ collection in history. Now (in the 90'es) we're at last getting back to the way of playing as Bach would played it. And with the correct registrations WR uses on the great German organ are absolutely superb!
