Do we really need BWV 565 in the general rotation of tracks? Most likely, I hear the first 3 notes and then turn OrganLive off for the day. I just don't need to hear it, no matter how well the artist is playing it. In mho, it should be on a request only status. The only redeeming feature of this piece, is that when you hear it alongside Bach's other great pieces, it truly sticks out as a work NOT written for the organ. It's clearly written for a solo string instrument and some clever person in history "fleshed it out" for the organ.

Iveta Apkalna: One of the greatest

By: tonithepipe on May, 17 2017

---I have my doubts--- I listen to her in the cologne cath. - very disapointing, because she couldn't handle the room's acoustics. fast bach-playing, poor registrations......

Delightful and precise. Very engaging performance.

By: fugara4 on Oct, 20 2016

One of the best organist of our time, inspired by pianistical technique, so she is in best "community" with Burkard Schliessmann ...

Really one of the best.

NOT AGAIN!! Please stop requesting Philip Glass's music!

By: ragbin on Sep, 16 2017

Most appealing minimalism. But don't attempt to dance to this "Dance no 4". It lasts for 17 exhausting minutes, the rhythm is fast, and it ends without warning. Dancing after the music has ended can make one feel - well....stupid?

By: Subharmonic on Nov, 14 2017

Apkalna now is chief organist in the 'Elbphilharmonie'. She performs excellently Would be great to hear a recording in Hamburg.

By: Sunday Afternoon on Jan, 26 2019

Something about this makes me think of the Magic Roundabout theme tune by Alain Legrand.

I'm saddened by those who cannot see/hear beyond the easily recognizable or comfortable - I agree with ragbin as to the cosmic feeling it gives - please be tolerant - sometimes we might not especially want to listen to the old and familiar when you do. I secretly get pleasure out of requesting the pieces that others abhor and which I like. So please keep it up!

The organist is just wonderful but this piece of music deserves to be never heard again. Just awful. 28 & a half minutes of the the same sounding notes over and over again. They may not look alike on a page but they sure do all sound the same. Pure torture. I think I will go run my vacuum sweeper. Sounds better!!

Worse organ music I have ever heard. I had to turn the volume all the way down. It gave me a severe headache!! Never play this again.

By: MusicDonor2014 on Feb, 11 2016

That's right . . . PLEASE never play this again.

By: ragbin on Feb, 11 2016

Think of it as a soothing and refreshingly minimalist vision of outer space (or, if you prefer, a calm stretch of water) blended with a reminder, at each change of chord, of the ecclesiastical space from whence it comes.

By: MusicDonor2014 on Feb, 24 2016

We have no recourse but to listen when we tune on and this is playing. The few times in my work day I'm allowed to play the radio are precious, so I am not going to turn around and turn OrganLive off! But, I find it hard to believe that someone requested this again. It must, indeed, be the performer herself !!

By: Tromba on Feb, 24 2016

Make it STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By: MusicDonor2014 on Feb, 24 2016

Can you BELIEVE it?

By: DougieSue on Jan, 28 2020

Truman, The Thin Blue Line, Jane (Goodall), The Fantastic 4, Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance... well, maybe that one is too artsy for most. These movies you may have seen and heard which are just a few for which Glass wrote music in his typical style. Would you deny the music in a summer breeze or a winter gale? Just turn down your sound if it is not your taste and stop being so unreceptive and judgmental. Thanks and Peace.
