Bach, Johann Sebastian (1685-1750) The Complete Organ Works. Hanssler Edition. (CD 4)

After listening to the fourth disc in this series on which Andrea Macon plays early works by Bach I decided to stop wasting my time with him. And that also goes for Kay Johansson. They are well represented in this box, but to my ears do no justice to Bach's organ works. At least they do not appeal to me. I have far better options as to sit and listening to what is to me not what I want or like. I love the organs used in this box, and that was the first impulse to get this set. I only payed 16 euro's for this box, so it's not a great loss to me, but I am disappointed and this counts much more in my book. After the disaster recording of Stefano Molardi I really believed this would not happen again to me, but it did!
I will however try all the other organists in this box, so maybe I will find some worthwhile interpretations.
