    Bach

    This is my oldest organ LP with the eight little preludes and fugues.
    As a very young man I visited a Trappist monastery and as I walked into the church a theology student who was also proficient in playing the organ was playing these pieces. It was a lovely experience on a sunny winter morning.

    Albert de Klerk and Meindert Boekel (chorals) organ

    One of the best DSCH CDs out there. Haitink's Decca 8 was the first DSCH CD I ever bought, and still a firm favourite.

    In fact it made it onto my MP3 player for my current vacation in Turkey!

    Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 95 "Serioso"
    Emerson String Quartet

    This is an exceptionally committed, impactful Serioso, with great passion as well as tremendous virtuosity. I love It! Especially the slow movement, which is among the most probing I know.

    Always pleases me when someone gives props to the Emersons. I think their LvB & Schubert performances are very underestimated and often misunderstood (that’s to say nothing of their BB and DSCH!).
