J.S. Bach: Complete Organ Works - Stockmeier Wolfgang 20CD AAD. PART 2: CD06-10

    Artist: Stockmeier Wolfgang on Kreienbrinck Organs
    Album: J.S. Bach - Complete Organ Works
    Released: 1981 (recorded 1977-1981)
    Label: Art & Music
    Catalog N°: 1539/58
    Genre: Classical, Organ
    File Format: eac_wv_cue_log, covers

    The first of the more modern sets that I came up with were Wolfgang Stockmeier whose LP recordings of the 1980s, all played on Kreienbrinck organs, all make an absolutely adorable sound.

    I haven't heard other performances of Bach's organ works (except in my parish church)so I cannot really compare this to others. However, I find this recording extremely listenable and straightforward. Moreover, for a beginner to Bach's organ music this edition comes at a very reasonable price (at least in Germany). Highly recommended!

    At first, I regarded Stockmeier's recordings as pedestrian, but altered my opinion after listening to some of the works. Some of the music is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. Definitely a creditable performance. My only criticism is that the music notes are in German only.
