Helmut Walcha gilt als Instanz der Bach-Interpretation – kein anderer Organist seit Erfindung der Schallplatte erzielte durch sein Bachspiel eine derart nachhaltige Breitenwirkung. Zum Gedenken an seinen 30. Todestag erscheinen erstmals alle Aufnahmen auf Archiv Produktion, Deutsche Grammophon und Philips in dieser Edition. Diese umfasst das Bachsche Orgelwerk in einer Mono- (1947-52) und einer Stereofassung (1956-71), das Wohltemperierte Clavier, die Violinsonaten mit Henryk Szeryng und Walcha am Cembalo, sowie Orgelwerke norddeutscher Prägung von Bruhns, Scheidt, Buxtehude und Sweelinck. Erstmals findet sich eine frühe Walcha-Aufnahme mit dem Thomanerchor Leipzig von 1927.

“One of the great interpreters of J. S. Bach,” was the New York Times’ description of the German organist and harpsichordist Helmut Walcha (1907-1991). His “intuitive grasp of the composer’s mind and intentions” was noted by The Guardian, while Gramophone judged that “his coherence and inner logic as a Bach interpreter remain unsurpassed.” Walcha’s recordings of Bach’s major solo keyboard works, performed on the harpsichord, are gathered together in this superb 13-CD collection.

Much of Bach’s organ music was written during the earlier part of his career, culminating in the period he spent as court organist at Weimar. Among many well-known compositions we may single out the Dorian Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538, the Toccata, Adagio and Fugue, BWV 564, Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582, Prelude and Fugue “St Anne”, BWV 552 (in which the fugue theme resembles the well-known English hymn of that name), Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, and the Toccata and Fugue in F, BWV 540. Chorale preludes are compositions for organ that consist of short variations on simple hymn tunes for all seasons of the church year. Better-known melodies used include the Christmas In dulci jubilo, BWV 608, Puer natus in Bethlehem, BWV 603, the Holy Week Christ lag in Todesbanden, BWV 625, and the Easter Christ ist erstanden, BWV 627, as well as the moving Durch Adam’s Fall ist ganz verderbt, BWV 637, and the familiar Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme, BWV 645, and Nun danket alle Gott, BWV 657.
