Explosions, jazz, pyrotechnics - great fun, then switching to a reminder of the primary, ecclesiatical role of the organ

Ear-splitting noise!

By: jfk1961 on Aug, 22 2012

This piece is so disturbing... especially on Baroque Wednesday. Why would anyone request these ear-splitting monstrosities on Wednesday? It destroys the calm serenity of the charming chorale preludes. It disrupts the virtuosic flow of the great toccatas, and it agitates the listener from enjoying any contrapuntal masterpieces played around it!

Not music. Not worth broadcasting.

Not particularly pleasing to my ear but that is the beauty of music what pleases some is not pleasing to others. Let us all learn some acceptance of DIFFERENCES.

Gee...if hitting random keys like this pays money, I could have made a mint by now.

Shame on you, Jim!

By: TrichterRegal on May, 22 2016

As brilliant as Bolcom is, this is pretty unlistenable as jimlogue states. I agree.
