Comments: Tomasz Pozdzik said:

The Great Fantasia & Fugue in G minor BWV 542 & the organ of St. Bavo in Haarlem & one of the greatest organist of XX century, nothing to add. It is simply the best interpretation of the Bach's Fantasia I've ever heard. Also Prelude & Fugue in B minor is outstanding. By the way... if you will see the CD "Piet Kee plays Bruhns & Buxtehude at the organ of Roskilde Cathedral" (CHAN 0539) - you must hear it!!! It will amaze you!!!
