Registrations never gaudy, always sweet and never hectoring, phrasing in almost extreme cantabile. The result is, I think, a revelation in terms of affects. We have a Bohm who is infused with a weighty, pensive melancholy. The Alkmaar organ is presently tuned meantone, and I think you can hear it. It looks to me as though Bohm was writing precisely at the time that there was a trend to tune organs equally. The history of the organ is well explained here https://www.alkmaarorgelstad.nl/en/orgels-en/van-hagerbeer-schnitgerorgan

The hypothesis of these recordings is that most pieces date from that period. My initial response to the "big sound" was reservation, but I was soon won over. Davidsson treats this giant like a baby and manages to create intimacy when needed.Q
Quote from: (: premont :) on November 16, 2019, 02:24:16 AMMaybe too big for Böhm's rather small scaled music.
Quote from: Que on November 16, 2019, 08:59:00 AMPerhaps/probably the organ at Böhm's later post, the St.Johannis at Lüneburg, would be the better option....Q
