THE YOUNG BACH reveals Bach, the teenager- a brilliant debut of talent that would change the organ world forever. Harald Vogel offers new insights into some of Bach's most popular early works, playing John Brombaugh's historically inspired instrument in Eugene, Oregon. Includes Bach's "Eight little Preludes and Fugues".
"The organ is magnificent, featuring generous scaling resulting in broad and powerful principal stops and singing flutes. The marriage of performer, organ, room, and repertoire is triumphant." - The Living Church.
This recording documents a recital given in February of 1996 on the Brombaugh organ of Christ Church Parish, Tacoma, Washington. The program features works by composers known to Bach, including Brunckhorst, J. Praetorius, Pachelbel, Buxtehude, CPE Bach, and JS Bach himself. Christ Church is a concrete building with generous acoustics, and one of the best settings ever for a Brombaugh organ.
