This is a very substantial work, not little at all! A flawless performance on what sounds like a real organ in a real room. Is this true? I was thinking that it must be very difficult to get a good legato when playing double stops on the organ. Often this is masked by the echoes in a large space, but this sounded a bit more non-legato, like how a pianist might interpret Bach. Was this intentional or was the room smallish?

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Ken320! Im sorry to say, its a recording done buy noteperformer. I did program some phrasings.┬á I do agree that it would be hard to play this perfect legato, but as a organist who plays by the principles of historical performance it its no problem. If you are to follow the principle of the fugue, with the individual voices, it will be natural to perform it that way. So each voice will have its own phrasing. And that is very possible in this piece ­čÖé

Common practice is to play more or less non-legato. The important thing tough is to have space before the accents, dominant harmonies, dissonances, new figures, melodic lines, etc. Historical performance is pretty difficult and advanced interpretation of music.

Thank you again for you kind comment, and that you took your time to listen to the piece! ­čÖé

This stuff is so beautiful. The noteperformer performance is actually pretty good!

Very beautiful and well done. Usually, I'm not very fond of works that resemble the baroque or classic periods. But this is a big work.

 

Not to put too fnie a point on it, but writing something that resembles a baroque piece might be something that I might do because I'm not a purist and not a stickler for accuaracy. But if you go to the trouble of learning the proper rules of form and counterpoint and then stick to it without exception and execute it as well as this - pretty much makes it the real thing. A small but important point imo.
