    Exclamation I have it!

    I have the download on my computer. However do wish there was a
    written download of toccata and fugue. I still have to learn the piece
    by ear and I'm having a ball with it! Good thing that I'm along by
    myself when I practice! One of the top musicians at the church happen
    to walk in and I was like oops! He laughed and smiled to tell me that
    he was going home for the day. Right now I have my version of it to
    work on until I can find the sheet music. The song was written for a
    catholic mass if you will listen for the A-men parts. It is a beautiful
    piece but not so complicated if you put your mind to it. I use this
    to try and improve my memory which my memory needs something
    I walked down main street to call my landlord and for the life of me
    I forgot his phone number before I got to a phone!

    The term song is so misused as to make me roll my eyes. A song is something sung a piece is something played ... easy to remember. Unfortunately the idiots at Apple chose the term "song" for any bit of music (regardless of heritage or genre) stored on their electronic money spinning devices.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the Taccata & fugue I finally recorded it on a disk. The top
    musicians at church don't have this recording. They have it with some
    one else on cassette tape who sounds like Liberice on Pipe organ instead
    of piano. So thanks again along with Highland Cathedral!

    I think this is about the fifth time I listened to this piece today. I keep
    on listening to it to help me with my practice of Toccata & fugue. That
    is the way I learn a piece. Since music teachers are scarce here, I learn
    how to play a piece by listening and reading the music along. I have
    tought myself much of the music I have to learn. Otherwise if I know
    the piece, hymn, or song I have no trouble playing it even by ear.
    This version of toccata & fugue is much richer than I have heard from
    anyone else. I wished Frederik Magle had this on video so I could
    see him in action! It sounds magnificant or something like that.

    I have now made a live recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's Toccata & Fugue in D minor (BWV 565) available on the net for free download in very high MP3 quality.

    I like that kind of organ. The stops are right at your fingertips when
    you need to change the sound quickly.

    Richter Influence?

    This performance of the T&C d-moll is among the very the best I've heard since Richter on the Marien Orgel zu Ottobeuren, and in fact is remarkably similar in approach. Have you been at all influenced by Richter?

    Hmmm, well had to see for myself ... found this on youtube (best one of the lot) although the Greek 'influence' is mysterious towards the end

    Sorry, Johann ... I mean no disrespect ... I agree, this is horrid

    + YouTube Video

    Thanks Sir Frederik for making this available - one of my favourite pieces.

    Here's the fugue from the piece on accordion -

    I find it rather impressive - better than the guitar version, though I quite liked that also.

    The reason I found it interesting is because the arranger was able to translate a classical piece to a non-classical medium. If you think of the brighter side, these rockers are listening to classical. For them to be able to perform it on electric guitar means they heard the classical over and over and over again.

    Classical people (like us) NATURALLY like classical music. Rockers, rock music. So if rockers perform classical, they have the power to influence the rock audience into classical. Don't you think that's good?

    @Contra, it seems you're living up to your name
    There are many stuff in YouTube that really makes you say PooTube but you can't discredit those that post good stuff. It is only through YouTube that I was able to see history more vividly especially that of WWII. The old Manila was also interesting for me. I got to see what it was like before as opposed to what it is right now. My kids get to sing videoke or karaoke because they are available in YouTube. You just have to know how to sieve the good ones from the bad ones.
