The Toccata & Fugue in D Minor by Bach

Post by DannyDaMan »

:D

This is one of the most beauteous pieces I've heard from him. It's about ten minutes long, and it is just gorgeous. Bach is a great genius.

Has anyone heard of it? (Obviously I know it because I'm listing to it now.)

Isn't that the music they play in all of the haunted houses?

Not exactly a fan of Bach, per se, but I certinally appreciate that he was a genius.

I just remembered that Fugue in G Minor makes an appearance in Mega Man Legends/64 for one of the final bosses, as do other pieces including Air.

Pretty neat. :)

I've played the opening section of this on the big organ we had in our school hall (the rest was too difficult, especially with the foot pedals!) - great fun pelting it out though :D

I like the song "Rattlesnake Shake" by Sebastian Bach. Mind you, that would be the Sebastian Bach that headlined the metal band "Skid Row", not the old dead guy :wink:

Bach, bah! Give me a Rach piano concerto anyday... Bach... Bach!? :P (I'm just biased against his main weapon of choice, is all)

I played a piece by Bach called Fugue in D minor for my Grade 8 piano exam...technically amazing. I love music from the Baroque era.
