    Retroccata and Fugue in D minor (new recording)

    Hello
    Here is a new recording of my old Retroccata. The sound now is very good and great in spite I did it with a small organ.
    For those who do not know this piece, it is a toccata got by playing Bach Bwv 565 backward. Of course it is not backward from the end to the begining, that would be horrible. It is played retrogradely bar by bar or by small groups of bars, changing notes and harmonies so as to chain the sequences correctly and keep the music pleasant to hear.
    The subject of the fugue looks like Bach's one but is really different.
    To play this music I used the virtual organ of St-Peter of Menesterol.

    Much better than the older version. Like this organ and resonance
