Notes & Reviews:

An album of Bach organ music performed by Harry Grodberg, the patriarch of Russian organists. After decades of intensive concertizing, his art remains fresh and his virtuosic technique still intact. His performances continue to delight listeners and critics in Russia and Europe. The album features seven chorale preludes, two monumental Toccatas and Fugues and the organ Pastorale in F major, a chamber masterpiece in its way in organ music. The recordings date from the 1970-1980's.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2014
Recorded in two concert halls wreathed in a somewhat forensic acoustic, this survey of 'Iron Curtain' Bach emerges as regimented and well-drilled as a Moscow May Day parade.
