Note

All organ pieces mentioned above were also published around 1990 on Hungaroton, still as LP's. They were issued on CD by quite many low price labels, partly with Miklós Spányi name, partly with the false name 'Otto Winter' (Hungaroton sold the materials to someone who made with it what he wanted...). Unfortunately some labels added two pieces Miklós Spányi has not recorded or not this way:
-Prelude & Fugue in E flat major, BWV 552: Miklós Spányi has never recorded it (unfortunately... he still hopes to do it one day)
-Toccata & Fugue in D minor, BWV 565: Miklós Spányi has recorded it as part of the 'Hungaroton' material but some of 'his' CD's contain it in a 'false' form, played by someone else. However, some publications of the same CD's contain his genuine recording of the piece. His version is about 8:30, recordings considerably longer that this are consequently played by someone else. Also the pitch of my recording is a1=415 Hz, the 'false' versions are all in modern, high pitch. Some labels added 'on Silbermann organ' which isn't true: the instrument in question was a small organ in Szombathely, Hungary, built in 1986 by Eule, Germany, well in Silbermann's style.
