Too bad Vernet's set is priced as if it's gold plated platinum...
If you are interested in a second set, the Hanssler set is good value for the money. Unless you can in fact find a copy of Vernet that is not priced like gold plated platinum.

Okay, emerged from my hunt for a second Bach organ set (utilizing YouTube to its fullest) with very favorable impressions of several organists: Weinberger, Kooiman et al (their respective parts on the Silbermann set), Alain, Bowyer, Vernet, Isoir, Chapuis, and who knows who else. But one organist stood out for me as a clear favorite: Vernet.

My initial impressions of Vernet were confirmed the more I heard: Vernet is more on the extrovert side compared to Foccroulle, but not lacking in subtlety, with a winning freshness. Foccroulle is still king of the king of instruments in Bach for me, but I'm looking forward to Vernet eagerly.

AND...in a spectacular stroke of luck, Vernet's set has just been reissued (in May)! It's not available in the States so far as I can tell, but it's available at a very attractive price from some of the European Amazons. With the exchange rate FINALLY evening out I snatched up a copy from AmazonDE for $39 US shipped!

Copious tips of the beret, Jeffrey!

Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

Crosspost of my reply in Bach Organ thread



Well Hurrah! And well done!

Now everyone else needs to grab it before it goes OOP again!

Too bad they didn't use the wierd cover art of the first set, with Frederick the Great chasing after Augustus of Saxony/Poland and JSB looming godlike above them. Can't have everything.

But wait a sec....that Amazon listing says it is five CDs! The original set had 19 (it included some supplemental discs such as the concertos for multiple keyboards performed on portable organs).  This may only be a highlights set. (Or Amazon made another mistake.)  Although even if it is just a selection, it's still a good purchase.

Amazon's mistake clearly, as the cover art says "15 CD" - I suppose those supplementary discs are absent.

Blessings on you! With all that purple and white blocking and those stamps of approval I missed that.

The reissue is available from AmazonUS as a download.

The concerto CD was also reissued. Same deal : download in the US, CD from AmazonDE

It's a nice little program all on its own.

Re Vernet's Bach box, both aFR and aIT (offering the set somewhat more expensive) have a tracklist for 15 discs:
https://www.amazon.fr/Bach-Ouvre-Orgue-Olivier-Vernet/dp/B06XHSK2HP/

The supplemental discs are listed on the back cover of the 19 disc set (click image to enlarge):

Arrived today: more CDs inspired by Reilly/Laurson's book Surprised by Beauty: Fuchs String Quartets

Is Fuchs doing it for you? I quite like his music, but I think Bob responds above-average positively to him. (Or is overselling Fuchs just a wee bit.)

Amazon france also has the set with a track listing for all 15 discs.

I own Vernet's set in a previous incarnation and the 15 discs are laid out differently. The whole shebang seems to have been reshuffled. I wonder why ?

Probably, but the music is really attractive. I do not regret the purchase.

3 sonatas and 2 small pieces for clarinet and piano by Max Reger.



I don't really need this, but for 0.87$ I won't cry if it's a dud.
