Description

Johann Sebastian Bach

Born in 1685, no other composer has written more nor written more beautifully for the organ than Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). The Toccata & Fugue in D minor is his most famous example of this talent. JSB was born into a family with a rich and long musical tradition. He was orphaned at the age of 9 and raised for 6 years by his eldest brother before entering the Choir of the Michaeliskirche in Lüneburg for 2 years. It is here that he emerged as an organ virtuoso, laying the basis of his musical career.

Toccata & Fugue in D minor

is perhaps one of his most imposing and majestic works for organ. It has been transcribed for a wide range of instrumentations, from solo guitar to large orchestra. Written in 1708 at the age of 23, the work is full of rich colors and sonorities, characteristics that are masterfully exploited in this arrangement for 6 horns by Kerry Turner.
