Bach: Prelude, Fugue And Allegro In E-Flat Major

Performed by Evangelina Mascardi.

Beautifully shot performance by a Baroque lute specialist, with camera angles designed to show the intricate finger work involved.

Responding to Antares: Not to be too pedantic, I think this lovely piece was written for lute or harpsichord, not organ. And responding to Joe, think this is actually a theorbolute (note the unfretted bass strings).

I enjoy arrangements of Bach's work for other instruments, but Bach wrote for the organ. To appreciate Bach, gotta hear it on the organ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDVfbFjOFDQ
