    As far as I know, the edition edited by Martin Haselböck (Universal Edition) is the most authorative and "scholastic" (Urtext) edition available. Could you please give some examples of thse "clear misprints" you mentioned? Yuu should have a look at IMSLP, there you will find pdf-files of modern Editions as well as the first Editione (4-hand piano version including pedal parts for organ). Well, I hope there are many differences! You really should listen to a recording on an historic German romantic instruments (e.g. Ladegast or Walcker), just for the impression, which organ sounds Li
  8. Hello! I was so lucky to be in Berlin, when Heinz Wunderlich gave a Recital at Berlin Cathedral in 2005. He played Bach's Prelude and Fugue in E minor, Mendelssohns 6th Sonata, Reger's 2nd Sonata and his one "Sonata tremolanda Hiroshima". In spite of the beginning of the Bach (many wrong notes, but he was in his 80s already) it was one of the most thrilling live performances I have heard. It must be said that Wunderlich's (or better: Straube's) Reger interpretations are more and more critizised and questioned, especially in Germany. Regards Karsten
  9. Hello! This recording was indeed made by Heinz Wunderlich at the Tzschöckel-organ at Schwäbisch Hall. The recording is available at organum classics. Regards Karsten
