Please recommend a complete Bach organ set...........

(1/4) > >>

Itullian:
Is there a set of Bach's complete organ works that you recommend?
Good sound please.
Thank you

JBS:
I'll jump in first and say Vernet if it's actually available (I'm not sure if it is).

Other sets I tend to like: Alain I, Hurford, the Hanssler multiperformer set.

There's also a set with several organists performed on Silbermann organs that's rather good. IIRC it's on Berlin Classics.

ETA: It's OOP, as is the Vernet.

Spotted Horses:
I'd say Alain II (analog recordings from the 70's) not to be confused with Alain III (digital recordings from the 80's).



Performances are superb and the audio quality is excellent.

I'd have recommended Isoir as a close second, but the set seems to be out of print.

No, you need to listen on a streaming service to all and every suggestion, because there is a huge variety, variety of performance style, instruments and recorded sound. Only you can say which ones you will value.

Speaking of Bach organ sets, Bram Beekman's set might be available again from lindenberg records, which has just recently been resurrected by the owner.
