This review is from: Complete Works For Organ (Alain) (Audio CD)
Alain excels in the large scale pieces. She has full command of Bach's big rhetorical works and their musical logic. She gives muscular readings of his preludes and fugues, IE her performance of the b minor prelude and fugue is the best I've heard.
Less impressive are her treatment of the chorales which, as stated by another review, is unimaginative. She seems to use the same registration for everything.
Even so, she has a good sense of rhythmical drive, and these performances do not slouch.
