Dr. Albert Schweitzer 
performing
The G-Minor Fantasy of J.S. Bach


Unfortunately, the Fugue is not recorded here as stated.
Dr. Schweitzer in addition to being a physician, and great humanitarian, was also an unusually gifted Organist and Music Scholar who left a highly successful career in music to pursue what-he-regarded-as a higher calling, ministering to the needs of African natives at his hospital in Lambarene.

  1. A wonderful performance of a wonderful piece by a wonderful man.

    Too bad so few gave it any attention, but that seems always to be the case with anything of great intrinsic value. People respond eagerly to the meretricious, the sensational and the shameful, but shy away from excellence, nobility and refinement.
