Toccata and Fugue in C Major, BWV 566a (Johann Sebastian Bach)

in #secretsoforganplayinglast month (edited)

This piece originally is known as Toccata and Fugue in E Major, BWV 566. However, copies from the 18th century by Johann Tobias Krebs and Johann Peter Kellner have survived as this piece transposed to C Major. In my mind it even sounds better on some historical temperaments plus the low C is more powerful than E. I had a great fun practicing it for a few months and recording it now. Hope you will enjoy it!


I have played this piece using Velesovo sample set by Sonus Paradisi of Hauptwerk VPO. If you like my music making, you can support me on Patreon and get free organ CD's at
