Turn then to Albert Schweitzer’s majestic, clumsy and stylistically anachronistic Bach and there’s expression in abundance; the fingers might occasionally be weak, but the spirit is strong. I adored it all (the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor included), but was amused to see that in the accompanying booklet, one of Bach’s BWV numbers is misprinted BMW. Alas, this one certainly wouldn’t pass its MOT! Robert Cowan
