Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 - Johann Sebastian Bach | Secrets of Organ Playing Contest Week 121

This is my entry for the Secrets of Organ Playing Contest Week 121. @organduo said that he missed my entries of late (I've been slack in entering), so I made the extra effort this week to make sure I submitted an entry.

This piece is probably one of the most famous pieces in the organ repertoire and to tell you the truth, I think most organists are sick of playing it. I guess it would be the equivalent of asking a person that plays the Cello to play the famous Bach "Prelude". Another one is the Widor Toccata...both enjoyable pieces to play (thrilling!) but it can be overdone. There's plenty of organ repertoire that deserves an airing to the general public.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this rendition—I aimed to be more creative in some parts whilst sticking to the traditional full organ sound.



Nice one. Not sure about the major ending though, I like the minor chord there. Well, perhaps I am to stuck in my perception of this piece

I think I can live with both, but I'll go with what others prefer :P
