    Retroccata in D minor

    This is my latest game, a retro- version of Bach's toccata.
    I don't know why the first ornament (a B flat "pincé" ) has vanished, but the result is fun, don't you think.
    I'll try to make it a little better, then I'll play with the fuga if it is not too difficult.

    With this music you can hear also my latest virtual organ, a mix of Cavaillé-Coll and Puget pipes. The MP3 is in 192 kbds/s fo a fine sound.

    Do you like my new game ?

    J.P. - it's wonderful!! Love it a lot, you NEVER surprise my good man. Take care!
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Musicalis,
    I'm not sure what your game is, but I love that sound. It really has me listening.
    Cavaille-Col seems the way to go! Is the upperwork his too?

    Aloha J.P.

    Hahahaha - I love what you do with JSBach's Toccata - quite wry actually...

    Cheerio,

    I agree Corno (alter ego) wry and twisted, but recognisable (J.P.'s music, not you). Be well my friend.

    This long d minor chord with the third on top will always remind me of Toccata and Fugue. Love the recording and the sound itself is very nice, too. Thanks J-P.

    Sounds like the real thing! That would be easy for me to play even on
    the piano. Once in a while I will get on the piano and play it. Yes I'm
    back on at least the piano. I get pretty tired of screwing the buttons
    back on the stops where the organist twist them off. That's the problem
    with the new Wicks organs of any size. The stops are not solid like with
    other organs. I will stick with the piano this time.

    hello
    Playing this music on a piano will be difficult. There are some passages where you need your two hands and the pedal. Look at the score :
