Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Follow one of the most acclaimed composers in the history of classical music on a memorable journey across Baroque Europe in this release featuring acclaimed organist Marie-Claire Alain. While savvy fans of Johann Sebastian Bach may note that the composer seldom traveled during his own lifetime, director Bruno Monsaingeon journeys far and wide to seek out the organs that Bach himself may have played, or which had been custom built to his specifications. Compositions include, "Toccata in F Major", "Trio sonata No 1", &Fantasia and Fugue in G minor", "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" and various chorale preludes.
