A disturbing organ, a disturbing sound; had it been in the western part of Germany,be sure it would have been demolished up to the last nail. But Fakt ist, this is whatJ-S Bach had in his ears as a tone:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44LT3A5x4qA.....And to modern ears, it sounds off-tune, so that we need to re-educate ourselvesif we want to hear Bach in his true colors. Alternatively, we can imagine "Bach neverplayed organs he liked save while in the North" etc.Best wishes,Pierre
It sounds very good to me, but then, I'm only an organist who plays Bach's music.MM
We need first to forget about our habits, tastes and training. Listen and see like a child, our criticalsense set to "OFF"; enter another world, another logic. We see that "Mixtur", that "Scharff" knob(whose orthograph may vary widely!); but what does stay behind it ? Something you do not expect,this is the only thing you can take for granted.And then the adventure starts, bringing you towards new horizons !Best wishes,Pierre
