OrgansToccatasOrgans, Toccatas, & Fantasias, featuring Marie-Claire Alain ★★★★

Marie-Claire Alain is a French organist, having a fairly broad repertoire, though she is known to have recorded the complete Bach organ works three times. In this brief video, she expresses her immense love for the compositions of Bach, and why she feels that Bach was the greatest of all composers. She performs many of his works on various organs throughout Europe, using a combination of larger and smaller church instruments. Included are organs that Bach quite possibly may have played on himself. She goes into a moderate discussion of the organ as an instrument. Her playing is excellent, and the discussion is enjoyable, though brief and somewhat disorganized. This is a nice once or twice watched film.
