By Ralph Moore TOP 50 REVIEWER on 30 May 2008
Format: Audio CD
I have loved this recording ever since I first heard and bought it on a hissy cassette tape in the late 70's; since then the sound has been cleaned up and you can hear Rogg playing with a grandeur and an over-arching grasp of the music's shape which I believe has never since been equalled, The master performance here is of Bach's own master work, the "Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor"; the finest piece of its kind that I know, the "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" not excepted. Rogg has a marvellous grasp of the architecture and pacing of this wondrous work and the colour he draws from the organ by his choice of stops is a delight: the music thunders and surges, then subsides into what for all the world sounds like bubbles of sound percolating through the denser surrounding air. I have tried in vain to find a performance equal to this but for me no other famous organist can approach it - not Peter Hurford nor even Rogg's later self on EMI. The Schubler chorales are also expertly and sensitively played. Unfortunately, this disc is hard to obtain and is, I believe, currently available only as part of a complete set; so meanwhile look out for second-hand copy - it's winner, even for those who think that they do not much like organ music. For them, this is a perfect introduction and sufficient to convert any waverer.
