THE ORGAN WORKS OF
J.S. BACH
VOLUME 1.

JEAN GUILLOU, ORGAN
Recorded at the Kleuker organ
of Notre-Dame des Neiges,
Alpe d'Huez, France.

DOR-90111 Cover - 18586 Bytes Prelude and Fugue in A Minor, BWV 543
One of the first of the Bach organ works to become popular during the renaissance of interest in his music during the first half of the 19th century, the "Great" Prelude and Fugue in A Minor was one of the six that Franz Liszt transcribed for piano in the late 1840s; like the Tausig transcription of the famous Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565, Liszt's arrangement gained a certain noteriety from its frequent appearance as a "curtain raiser" on the programs of virtuoso pianists.

Fantasia and Fugue in G Minor, BWV 542
Like the Prelude and Fugue in A Minor, BWV 543, the Fantasia and Fugue in G Minor, BWV 542, was one of the first of Bach's organ pieces to become well-known during the Bach rinascita in the first half of the 19th century; it is also one of the six such works that Liszt arranged for piano.
