Rubsam Rubs Some Bach

I have collected a number of organ albums over the years, and I have found that in most instances I have judged their merits by the particular organ played rather than the artist. However, there are some exceptions, and Rubsam is one of them. "Wolf" Rubsam knows Bach. He can feel the passion, the drive, the precise equation, the underlying emotion that defines Bach in an era that was defined by Bach. The only other artist who does that for me is Gould. As much as Rubsam is critical of Gould (as are some others), I have to think it's only that each sees different sides of Bach and can't agree on who is the real "Bach." On this and other of Rubsam's albums (some of which are recorded on his own organ in his own studio) you will hear some of the best interpretations, which are also recorded on some of the very finest instruments. But I hesitate to say that because maybe it's Rubsam's understanding of the organ as a living, singing entity, one that he brings to life or awakens from sleep.

Pretty Good

It's pretty good, but the only issue I have is with the Fugue in G minor. In this version, it is played in A flat minor instead of G minor. I'm not sure if that was an intentional transposition or just an error, but it's enough to bug me.
Played very nicely however.
