This recording is simply perfect: Josef Sluys, one of the most most talented organists of our day, Flanders' cultural ambassador and a musician who has been decorated by the Pope and King Albert II with major awards, performs Johann Bach's Little Organ Book in Brussels Cathedral on one of Europe's most important organs. This is the essential collection of works described by brilliant Bach expert Albert Schweitzer as being the "dictionary of Bach's musical language": "This is the starting point if one wants to understand just what he wishes to express in the themes of the cantatas and passions." Sluys performs the works with objective understanding, while maintaining a high level of artistic power and subtle nuances. As such this recording is not only a must for organ experts but for all those who love Bach's music.
