Aarnoud de Groen

Aarnoud de Groen, Saturday night, March 21, 2009

I'm a great fan of organist Aarnoud de Groen. He plays Bach just right, for me at least. Not too fast, not too slow. I actually knew him from his YouTube videos. This is a few seconds of a concert he gave on Saturday night. I was able to attend that with my brother Wouter:
