Greatest Bach Organ September 11, 2016By owen ryan (lakewood, CA)See All My Reviews"I've saved the best for last. Sixty or seventy years ago Biggs was well known (he even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame) but, sadly, little known today. Simply put, his performances of Bach's four great Toccatas and Fugues are the best! They were recorded on the four antiphonal organs of the magnificent Cathedral of Freiburg, Germany. The Cathedral is 328 feet long with a six second reverberation time. All four organs can be controlled from a central console. What a fantastique sound; this 1971 analogue recording has not been bettered by any digital competetors. For a mere $9- you can't go wrong on this one."Report Abuse
