Brahms few organ pieces are a marvelous late career embellishment to his keyboard Opus. Since I love Brahms' musical idiom, I find these works enchanting. Most recordings are too slow and overblown to my taste, just not Brahmsian. To my ear, the best interpreter was Viktor Lukas in the Evangeliche Stadtkirche in Bayreuth, only released on vinyl by EMI-Electrola. I only pick another organist for one of the Opus 122 works: Kari Vuola for O Gott, du frommer Gott. for me, Vuola provides the full power this work demands.
