Seems at first an oddly cautious reading by modern standards, possibly because the effort is put into letting the music speak for itself instead of wrapping it in a theatrical performance - an approach which ultimately is more about show than musical integrity.

With all respect to Mr. Schweitzer, waaaay too legato, and very heavy registration. And yes, I realize the organ he was playing wasn't Germanic.

Wonderful "Romantic Bach", purely and serenely played from Schweitzer's earlier days.

An odd sound to this recording - which is perhaps appropriate as it's the ghostly sound of an organ long since destroyed.

1-r choral de Franck is in E major, not D-major!

By: stlorganist on Apr, 05 2016

Extremely slow. IMHO. But as I say in my comments all the time, music is a matter of interpretation. To play it exactly the same over and over would be boring and mundane.

We are so fortunate to have available so many performances and recordings of the great literature for The King of Instruments. There are many things to be learned from each of these - from present times all the way back to when the art and magic of recording first began. Progressions of learning . . . early to recent.
