Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor on Accordian

Who would have thought anyone could have squeezed this masterpiece out of an accordian? This performance is quite amazing considering it’s missing a third voice: an organist can use his feet on another whole keyboard.

In the 1980s a musicologist proposed that the work is not Bach’s as it contains sylistic and harmonic features that are rare in the composer’s work. The piece remains hugely popular and my blog post on the Tocatta is my most viewed post.
