ALL BACH ORGAN RECITAL - PETER SYKES, Organist Young Bach was a firebrand - impetuous, brilliant, and uncompromising. He got in trouble with church authorities for playing "strange harmonies that confused the congregation." Combining free works (toccatas and preludes and fugues) with chorale-based works, and those strange harmonies, as well as music that is by turns impassioned, light, monumental, virtuosic, and actually fun to listen to, this audacious program shows the brilliant promise of the young Bach, who wrote much of his organ music as a young man.
