Bach, Peter Hurford collection.
Bach's organ works, for the most part, definitely fall into that category. This particular rendition I selected because I loved the rich, resonant sound of the recording which, despite some analogue glitches due to its being recorded from 1964 to 1980, transferred well to CD. This full-bodied sound is at its best on the pieces played on the Silbermann and Great Silbermann organs, which have a strikingly powerful sound that one might almost expect of an orchestra's brass section. Tracks 4 and 5, "Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor (Dorian)" highlights this the best.

Artist: Karl Richter Title Of Album: .
Instrumentation: Organ. Peter Hurford here plays various pieces on 5 different organs. This is an excellent recording. The whole set is excellent, especially the impressive Prelude & Fugue in D major (BWV532) and the Passacaglia (BWV582).
Bach's Toccata and Fugue weren't performed on the organ exclusively: the title page of the first publication of the piece already indicated that performance on the piano by one or two players was possible. From 1868 to 1881 Carl Tausig's piano transcription of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor was performed four times in the Gewandhaus in Leipzig.
