Wilhelm Kempff’s credentials as an organist and composer lend a naturalness and flexibility to these performances of some of Bach’s best known Preludes and Fugues. There is also the very forward-looking, almost improvisatory piece of program music – the ‘Capriccio’ and a wonderful performance of the great ‘D major Toccata and Fugue’.
