    Great performance of Bach BWV 540

    Sorry, BWV number ought to read 540. Can you please change it Kh!

    Wondering if others have found this performance by Dan Campolieta:

    In addition to his organ skills he's a composer and jazz pianist.

    Very much enjoyed. Well done performance- clean and clear. Love the sound of the instrument as first time I have heard it. Thanks for posting. Hope all is well with you too Nikam.

    Enjoyed listening to this performance too. One of my favorite Bach pieces for organ - I've used the fugue for service music on occasion.

    Indeed - a good, clean performance* and a good and entirely apt sound from this instrument.



    * Aside from the odd F-sharp at 1'38". This is surely a mistake - I have neither seen this in any printed edition nor heard another performer end the first pedal solo with anything other than a G.
    Pierre Cochereau rocked, man.

    Difficult to be certain, but it looks as though he has held the F-sharp, shortened the G and come straight in with the chords. However, am willing to be corrected!

    No - he definitely plays an F-sharp instead of a G - and then comes in with the next chord.
