A commentary on this week’s music by Dr. James Gerber, Music Associate

Toccata and Fugue in D minor (BWV 565)

This composition by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is probably the best known organ work of the entire repertoire. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly when Bach composed this piece, but it is likely an early work. During Bach’s youth, he held relatively short-term posts as the organist for the Churches of St. Boniface in Arnstadt and St. Blasius in Mühlhausen.
