An incredibly tedious and plodding fantasia followed by a rather thin and tinkly fugue. There's precious little to sustain life here.

Not worth hearing!

By: tonithepipe on Jul, 15 2016

i hear more distuning than historic Temperament...

By: Tromba on Aug, 02 2016

Organ/tuning/temperament is PAINFUL.

By: jmmccabe1 on Sep, 13 2016

I am supportive of historical temperament - but this is either painfully bad tuning or highly unstable wind that makes this simply AWFUL to listen to for 15 minutes This is not like any other Silbermann i've heard.

Absolutely inappropriate tempo. "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme" is supposed to arouse the listener with a call of "Wake up!" not lull him to sleep!

Sleepers, go on back to sleep...

Plodissimo

By: MusicDonor2014 on Oct, 26 2016

Wouldn't you like to know the REAL REASON Mr. Richter played and recorded this piece at this tempo. Surely there was a good reason and not that he just couldn't control it at a faster clip. Benefit of doubt.
