Comments:dan w said:

This recording is a collection of live performances by Jeanne Demessieux at 3 different organs in Hamburg. Unlike many live recordings, there are no audible mistakes (at least to my ears) and there is no coughing. The two Bach works are played legato and without changes in registration or rubato. Most interesting is the last piece, which is an improvisation based on the theme from the 46th Cantata.
