Played by Ewald Kooiman. (1938-2009)
I can only repeat what I have already said in the first 5 volumes out of this series, it's essential to have. No Bach lover can pass up these recordings. Do not deprive yourself of such excellence, you will be the poorer for it. The riches are enormous, your understanding of Bach will massively improve and so will your pleasure listening to it. Ewald Kooiman draws you into his world with such ease, that you almost become part of the instrument yourself. The Neumeister collection makes me always happy to hear, as the Schubler collection, such well written pieces.
The sound is spectacular.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
