Comments:I don't like too much " la Chapelle Sixtine", but Liszt's arrangements on Bach's organ Preludes and Fugues are amazing. About the performer, he treats Bach's compositions very well, because every part is well phrased and the contrapunctus is treated with great respect. On the other hand, the execution is full of that romantic mood of Liszt's music. So, this a very exciting mixture between the best of baroque music with the feeling of the romantic era.
