Notes & Reviews:

Hansjörg Albrecht, conductor, organist and harpsichordist, is Artistic Director of the Munich Bach Choir & Bach Orchestra. He also regularly conducts the Münchner Symphoniker, the Bach Collegium Munich and the C.P.E.-Bach-Choir Hamburg.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Albrecht plays the Kleuker- und CavaillT- Coll-Mutin organ in the St Nikolai Church in Kiel. He uses transcriptions by Lemare and Erwin Horn. Besides the two duplications, Albrecht plays the overtures to TannhSuser, Parsifal, and Flying Dutchman. The organ registrations are more mellow, well integrated, yet with clarity of line, the performances very exciting with lots of movement and propulsion. It's an aural treat. Also included is "An Imaginary Talk with Richard Wagner", a most entertaining conversation between organist Albrecht and composer Wagner (written by Albrecht).
