 Organic Bach September 10, 2016 By owen ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "I have 5 bach organ CD's--probably about 3 too many. I have been comparing them and have designated 2 for disposal leaving Rogg as one of the remaining. Rogg is a Swiss organist and professor. I wish I knew something about the organ but the CD booklet does not give any details other than the 1976 recording date and EMI's logo for digital remastering. What I do know is that Rogg is a skilled organist and this disc is a nice recording. Rogg uses some small pipes to good effect producing some delicate touches. I sometimes think the low end is a little weak but maybe that is just the organ. In any case, for the low price of this disc you can't go wrong." Report Abuse
