handsoff Posted November 6, 2009 Share Posted November 6, 2009 I'd be interested to learn members' recommendations for recordings of BWV 525 - 530. I have Helmut Walcha's recordings from Lubeck and Cappel and have to say that I don't especially like the sound, finding that some of the registrations almost set my teeth on edge. I don't wish to start a thread on the relative merits of historical versus modern instruments or whether Bach should be played only on "authentic" organs and would appreciate some open-minded comments based on what I should like to hear, which is something akin to the sound Thomas Trotter produced when he played No.1 at Birmingham Town Hall a few weeks ago. What I'm probably saying is that I'd like a recording on an English instrument to which I can relate irrespective of whether it's anything like what may or may not have been heard in 17xx. Thank you in advance. P PS D'oh! How can titles be edited to make me look less stupid?! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
