Does it seem a little fast?

By: mrorgan on Feb, 07 2017

It seems like it's a Newman trait - faster is better...

I was never impressed by such velocity. I find it disagreeable.

By: jsb1685 on Jan, 02 2013

way too fast, this is just silly and ruins it

Too fast, choppy and generally very messy. The fugue is utterly ridiculous.

By: gemshorn on Feb, 08 2013

agree, way tooooooo fast! and one single registration throughout the entire piece, not the kind I prefer...

Surprise - another one played *way* too fast... and faster than the organist can manage.

When playing the Prelude, was he thinking that he had a plane/train to catch?

By: Ortolland on Jul, 23 2013

Such a tempo is a nonsense.

By: tonithepipe on May, 03 2016

i have the same Impression...

By: Piccolo on Aug, 14 2016

@ Ortolland: Without discussion: This speed is really a nonsense. The composition is loosing character

Hmm - playing a passacaglia like a prelude doesn't work. Too fast and much, MUCH too showy, twiddly and dynamic: totally misses the point, the movement and the stately progression of this piece.

By: jfk1961 on Mar, 19 2012

Whoa! Slow down Dude!!!

By: stlorganist on May, 30 2012

is this guy running in the Kentucky Derby? I seldom comment on the organists interpretation but this is far to fast.

By: nigh on Aug, 08 2012

I have never heard this man play at other than breakneck speed. Thus I have never sought out his recordings.

By: gemshorn on Jan, 23 2013

Much too fast indeed, and indeed the passacaglia is played like a prelude and I don't like it much. But this alternate view of this much played work is yet interesting. And very cleanly played, which is at this speed not a small point!
