Notes & Reviews:

Who says that young people nowadays don't present innovative programs anymore? The highly virtuoso winner of the Leipzig Bach Competition 2012, Johannes Lang, even manages to integrate a Bach homage into his Genuin debut CD that was created before Bach's birth - is such a thing possible? Yes - listen to the CD for yourself and study the interesting text written by the soloist! Pieces by Bach himself and others based on the tone sequence B-A-C-H (B-flat, A, C, B-flat) are put together here in an intelligent compilation that will transport the organ-music lover from 1600 to the year 2014. It's an exciting journey that even contains a world premiere recording: Jan Esra Kuhl's "Variations on B-A-C-H".
