J S Bach: ‘Great’ B minor prelude for organ, BWV 544, with synchronised scrolling notation. I stopped playing church organ when I was 19, but I have since then often heard this passionately anguished yet dignified and sometimes playful prelude in my head. When, 30 years later, I finally acquired an instrument allowing me to make this amazing Bach piece come to life again, I recorded it using my Korg M1 and MIDI editing software of the day. Maybe there’s a little too much 16' sometimes in my recording (and the reverb is certainly excessive) but I think this version has a lot of get-up-and-go, so I'm not ashamed to put it on line. If you enjoy it a quarter as much as I enjoyed playing it, you'll have made my day!
For organ; BWV 544, Novello Book VII. Full Hauptwerk (Great) and not bad Ruckwerk (Choir) on a Korg M1 synth. Full pedal added where appropriate. The reverb is a bit excessive sometimes but this version has plenty of go. Brilliant salti duriusculi in Bm (on A#/Bb), F#m (on E#/F) and Em (D#/Eb). Bach rules. (Arr., perf., rec. by Philip Tagg)
