As one completely devoted to the organ works of Bach (and of others), I highly recommend this recording. I have loved Buxtehude's organ works for many years, and had certain recordings on LP (old Mercury Living Presence of Alf Linder and the LP of Walcha's "Orfelmeister vor Bach,") which are my favorites. Neither, however, is available on CD. While Walter Kraft is not Helmut Walcha or Alf Linder (an objective observation, not a qualitative one), he is not an average, or even a good organist. He is a superb organist. Listening to this album not only brought me back to organ music that I love, it introduced me to someone who plays it differently (not worse) than those I was familiar with. I knew Walter Kraft's playing from some Bach LP's I have hidden away in my multitude of old recordings. I prefer Walcha and Karl Richter for Bach, which does not mean that I will throw away any Jeanne Demessieux, E. Power Biggs, or Simon Preston recordings I have, let alone my Schweitzer LP's. This album is not only the best recording available of all Buxtehude's organ music, it stands by itself due to the virtuosity of Mr. Kraft. It is great music, well played, and eminently listenable.

  1. Thank you Ivan so much for this upload. The LP's introduced me to the superlative music of Buxtehude in the 1970's when I bought the original LP's
    I don't think there has been a better version of Buxtehude's organ music with the playing of Kraft, the sound of the organ and acoustics of the building.
