Quote from: premont on July 24, 2007, 10:35:52 AMThis depends of course much upon the acoustics of the church in question. You can´t move the organ to the studio for the recording, and by the way how much reverberation, you want, is a matter of taste.
Quote from: 71 dB on July 24, 2007, 10:57:37 AMThis volume 9 in question has been recorded with very near microphones. The direct sound is much stronger than the reverberation. It sounds like the organ was in a large living room instead of a church!
Quote from: val on November 03, 2007, 01:56:16 AMJ S BACH: Orgelbüchlein / André Isoir (CALIOPE)One of the most touching works of Bach, consisting on 45 short chorals, each one with a deep symbolism. Most of the chorals were composed between 1713 and 1716.André Isoir is very poetic and fluent, and the instrument is beautiful. The best version I know of this work.
Quote from: Bogey on July 24, 2007, 01:50:10 PMFor those of you that have multiple recordings, how much does the actual organ used effect the recording sound....I know one obviously has to take into account the performer, venue, sound egineers etc..... But what are your thoughts on particular organs? Do you have a favorite?

Quote from: premont on November 04, 2007, 07:55:20 AMIsoir´s Bach integral was made during a long period of time and is rather uneven. He got better with time. I find his playing generally brilliant and flowing but often too streamlined, something made possible by the modern organs he preferred to use. The best part of the cycle is IMO the Clavierübung III played on the historical Joseph Gabler organ in Weingarten, whereas the sound of the Grenzing organ he uses much, is less suited for Bach, at least in these ears.
Quote from: masolino on November 04, 2007, 05:30:11 AMJacques Oortmerssen's series on Channel Classics is well-recorded (on various famous baroque instruments) but the interpretations are unfortunately quite too literal and unexciting to these ears. His account of fantasia and fugue in a minor (BWV 543) in vol. 6 sounds really like a non-event compared to the sizzling performance by Lorenzo Ghielmi in his album "Bach and Romanticists."

Quote from: opus67 on November 23, 2008, 10:14:18 AMThe complete organ works, plus the AoF, for $25. On 5 non-hybrid SACDs. http://www.mdt.co.uk/MDTSite/product/SO_BIS/BISSACD1527-28.htmDo I understand them correctly? They've used SACD just to store 17 CDs worth of music, and this doesn't have the any benefits sonically?

Quote from: Que on November 10, 2008, 06:14:50 AMAnd I'm considering these:The idea of four hands organ arrangements of movements from the cantatas, performed on Dutch historical organs, seems pretty irresistible to me! And it sounds good...
