Quote from: Marc on May 05, 2009, 10:14:03 AMYes, too bad, I listen to his organ music with great pleasure.I do recall that, after listening to the Helmut Winter recording and after reading Bruhns' biography (being a violin & organ virtuoso), for a moment I thought: well, could he be the composer of Bach's BWV 565?
Quote from: Coopmv on May 05, 2009, 10:17:19 AMBut there is no dispute as to the exact nationality of Bruhns as compared with Buxtehude. Bruhns was 100% Danish without a doubt ...
Quote from: Coopmv on May 05, 2009, 12:10:19 PMJust dug up this Chandos CD to play. The Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland by Bruhns is quite nice. The first movement and the last movement are each preceded by some lovely soprano singing. It was this CD that first introduced me to the artistry of Nicholaus Bruhns. This CD is OOP but is available as used on Amazon ranging in price from $53 to $120 ...

Quote from: Que on February 24, 2008, 05:30:28 PMI'm looking for a good recording of the organ music by Nicolaus Bruhns!Any recommendations?
Quote from: premont on May 05, 2009, 01:52:37 PMWhich Christensen?? Jens E Christensen??Do you know a link to this recording?Thanks in advance.
Quote from: premont on May 05, 2009, 02:03:34 PMI own all these (and the P Kee) except the Foccroulle, which is on my wish-list.
QuoteListened to day to the Bruhns / Ghielmi and was not impressed. Most of the playing sounds stiff and unengaged in these ears, and this Ahrend organ in Milano strikes me not as being the best suited medium for this music.
QuoteI can listen to the others in the run of the week.
Quote from: Bulldog on May 05, 2009, 12:04:46 PMI have doubts. Bruhns was born and died in Germany. He did have a post in Copenhagen, but I don't know its duration.
Quote from: Que on May 05, 2009, 03:36:09 PMWow! Didn't expect anyone to have (almost) all of them, not even you!
Quote from: Marc on May 05, 2009, 09:44:00 PMPlease give us a list of baroque organ cd's you don't own.
Quote from: premont on May 06, 2009, 11:34:46 AMWell, I must say, that I am beginning to loose track of things. Actually I just realised that I do not - to my surprise - own the Bruhns / Flamme CD, but I am going to acquire it with my next order together with his Tunder CDs from CPO.
Quote from: Coopmv on May 06, 2009, 05:13:46 PMI bet I may have some obscure organ works CD's (not necessarily Bach) you do not have, even though I am no nut of organ recordings.
Quote from: Coopmv on May 06, 2009, 05:13:46 PMI think my Bach organ works collection is quite balanced considering that I have 1000+ LP's/CD's on various works of Bach ...

Quote from: Bulldog on May 07, 2009, 02:09:28 PMDo you grow CDs in your backyard?
Quote from: Bulldog on May 07, 2009, 09:34:48 AMOf course. Each of us thinks our collections are balanced based on our respective preferences.
Quote from: Coopmv on May 07, 2009, 05:00:27 PMNot true. A Bach collection which is made up of 80% of organ works cannot be considered balanced.
Quote from: Bulldog on May 07, 2009, 05:21:38 PMIt can be considered balanced by the person owning the collection. For example, 50% of the organ collection is on historical organs. This is nuts - screw balance.
