Catalogue Number: 06I077
Reference: 777 215
Description: In this 1924 transcription, Middelschulte combines absolute faithfulness to Bach's original structure with a delight in all the possibilities of the modern Romantic organ. In addition, to produce the 101 minutes this recording takes, Sonnentheil plays repeats of each variation in which he employs the great number of additions and changes which exist in Middelschulte's hand copy of the score, the most substantial being a wealth of supplementary voices and motifs which considerably thicken the texture. 2 CDs. Jürgen Sonnentheil (Woehl organ of St. Petrus Canisius, Friedrichshafen).
