Enjoyed Muffat Organ Works vols. 1 and 2 by Haselbock this weekend.  I like the albums by Kelemen and Falcioni as well, but these discs sound wonderful.

There is a  "great" organ recording with the Mendelssohn op 65 sonatas, it is magnificent. But it may not be possible to buy it any more. it is by Gerd Zacher and it includes the Brahms op 122 preludes, equally wonderful, bold and imaginative. The organ, by Karl Schuke in Essen, is magic, and the sound take puts you very convincingly in the body of the church, as it were. If you want I will let you have the files.

Gerd Zacher is a magnificent and creative organist, here, in Bach and in Schoenberg, Kagel and Ligeti.



Saw this message quoted, which [emphasis added] motivated me to pull an obscure recording off the shelf:

Zacher plays Rrrrrrr..." · 8 Orgelstücke

Thanks for the recommendations. Lots to explore with the Frescobaldi.

Is that an historical organ?

This beauty over here for CD1, a large 17th century South German organ known for its plethora of reed stops in an otherwise reed-less region. CD2 is a later, 1721 organ by Egedacher in Stiftes Zwettl.

Gosh, judging from the audio samples this one will be a barnburner.

Sorry about the late reply. It appears to be a 17th century-built organ. I love the albums as well as the organ sound.
