Just in Time for Halloween: Toccata and Fugue in d minor by J.S Bach

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 by Mary O'Connor | holiday

toccata-d-minor

 

Johann Sebastian Bach's towering monument of organ music, with its deep sense of foreboding, will forever be associated with Halloween.

Get a free copy of the sheet music at IMSLP or borrow a copy from the O'Connor Music Studio.  I have this arranged for organ, piano, duet, 2-piano, simplified...

If you want this in a book with other Bach transcriptions, amazon has this: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor and the Other Bach Transcriptions for Solo Piano, arranged by Ferruccio Busoni.

Here, Virgil Fox performs it on his Allen Digital Touring Organ.



 

Diane Bish plays the Massey Memorial Organ at the Chautauqua Institution and talks about this instrument.



 

And, the most fun...
