    First Post!

    Hello Frederik! This is my first post and my first real longing for a classical piece. I got introduced to the organ through the rock band Iron Butterfly (of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida fame) and I can't get enough of it through rock, hence the switch to classical. But for some reason, I can't download Tocatta and Fugue in D-Minor from the link. Is there a mirror site or maybe a direct download link?

    Welcome, AustinPrince

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble downloading the Toccata and Fugue. That's very strange - could you possibly explain what happens, please. Do you get an error message?

    In any case you may try this mirror (though I doubt it will be much different): J.S.Bach Toccata & Fugue in D-minor MP3. Let me know how it goes.

    Kind regards,
    Frederik

    Sorry, Frederik, I also should have said thank you, a very cerebral interpretation indeed. Well done ... I look forward to you completing the organ works of Bach, soon?

    I AGREE!!! Wow that T&F was mind-blowing, Frederik! I don't suppose you could treat us to your playing of the Toccata by Widor? Thank you SOOO much. Susanne.
