Karl Richter Plays Bach

Toccata e Fuga in D minor, BWV.565

 Toccata e Fuga in G minor, BWV.915


  1. Thanks for posting! I didn't know Richter also had a career as a keyboard performer. Oh for a chance to play an organ like that. (and to know how to play an organ like that!)

  2. I didn't know either! And indeed these two performances are as fascinating and laudable for Richter's virtuosity and music-making as they are for Bach's incredible music. I cannot cease from marveling at the display, Richter's unflappable demeanor, and as you say, these magnificent instruments.
