Bowyer offers no less than 44 (mainly) short works on these two superb discs on the Marcussen Organ of Sct. Hans Kirke, Odense.
Composer: JS Bach
Repertoire: The Works for Organ Vol.15
Artists: Kevin Bowyer (organ)
Label: Nimbus NI 57000/1
It’s a volume of bits and pieces and spurious works (some of them pretty lacklustre) very much for the Bach completist. Kevin Bowyer is one of the most stylistically complete and tonally imaginative of living organists, and the colour, fluency and rhythmical buoyancy he invests in each piece is simply a joy to hear.
