The Friday OT: Karl Richter plays JS Bach Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor (BWV 582)

Recorded in 1969.

As the poster of the Youtube explains, the original sound quality of the recording was poor, so it's been replaced by another audio-only recording of Karl Richter playing the same piece. A necessary sleight of hand that takes nothing away from the absolute drop dead freakin' awesomeness of this week's Friday OT.
