Description: Bach's organ sonatas, really trio sonatas for two keyboards and pedals, have always been a formidable challenge for organists, but Romantic composers and transcribers turned them into easy and smooth performance vehicles for two pianos. Everything here is a first recording except for Howe's "Sheep may safely graze" and Babin's of BWV 527. Claudine Orloff, Burkard Spinnler (pianos).
