Product Description

Ellenberger presents an idiosyncratic rendition of eight well-known Bach works, highlighting each work’s distinctive features in hommage to well-known historical figures.

"This recording of Bach on the great symphonic Cavillé-Coll/Dargasies organ in the Parish Church of La Madeleine in Paris attempts, in an unorthodox and deliberately sensuous - and occasionally eyebrow raising way - to reveal and literally strike the right chord in the non-scholarly, life-affirming moment in the universal cosmos of Bach's organ music...It was absolutely not the intention of either the performer or publisher to found a new, even groundbreaking "school for playing Bach", but nevertheless to evoke and communicate the joy of playing Baroque music." - CD liner notes
