 Favorite Organ Works August 25, 2017 By David F. (Manlius, NY) See All My Reviews "Reasonably well recorded technically but playing far from robust. There are better recordings of these organ pieces out there." Report Abuse
 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
