A theory has recently (1981) been put forth that J. S. Bach did not write this piece. A brief summary of the supporting evidence for this theory can be read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toccata_and_Fugue_in_D_minor#AttributionQ: What's wrong with synchronization?A: I don't know, but it appears that if you use this URL, it works better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipzR9bhei_o&fmt=18Q: Where can I get the mp3 of this?A: You can download it here: http://www.musanim.com/mp3/BachToccataAndFugueInDMinorMalinowski.mp3Q: What does the piece look like as a whole?A: There are versions you can print out here http://www.musanim.com/printoutsThe 'scroll' version is for cutting out and taping together to form a long strip.Q: Where can I get the MIDI file that this was made from?A: I'm not sure it's exactly the same, but the closest I could find was this: http://www.musanim.com/mid/ToccataAndFugueInDMinor.midQ: Hey, what happened to my question/comment?A: Questions answered in the FAQ, and comments with nothing to do with the video ("spam"), are removed.

Before that, it did not have that connotation. When Walt Disney and Leopold Stokowski used it in the 1940 film Fantasia, they considered it to be a purely abstract piece --- "absolute music" --- which brought to mind expressionistic forms and lines..

Posibly my favourite Bach composition. The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, is a piece of organ music composed by Johann Sebastian Bach sometime between 1703 and 1707. It is one of the most famous works in the organ repertoire, and has been used in a variety of popular media ranging from film, to video games, to rock music, and ringtones. As indicated by the accepted title of the piece, the Toccata and Fugue is scored in D minor. It is not in dorian mode as the key signature supposes, as it was common practice in the Baroque period to write in leading tone accidentals rather than in the key signature. It begins with a single-voice flourish in the upper ranges of the keyboard, doubled at the octave. It then spirals toward the bottom, where a diminished seventh chord appears, built one note at a time. This resolves into a D major chord, taken from the parallel major mode. The subject of the four-voice fugue is made up entirely of sixteenth notes, with an implied pedal point set against a brief melodic subject that first falls, then rises. The second entry starts in the sub-dominant key rather than the dominant key. Although unusual for a Bach fugue, this is a real answer and is appropriate following a subject that progresses from V to I and then to V below I by a leap. A straightforward dominant answer would sound atonal and odd in a Baroque piece. After the final entry of the fugal melody, the composition resolves to the key's corresponding major, B-flat, that is ...

Bach toccata and fugue played on the chapman stick by Bob Culbertson. The chapman Stick invented by emmett Chapman is a 12 string touchboard. Tapping the strings into the frets creates enough vibration to be amplified. See my site stickmusic.com and Emmett;s site www.stick.com for more information about the Stick. and the music.
Visit georgewhiteside.net for more information! Test run of my (d)iskette (O)rgan doing Toccata & Fugue. People have made floppy drives sing before, but this is my personal take on it. Features two 3 1/2" drives and two 5 1/4" drives connected to a PIC18f14k50 microcontroller. It interfaces to any MIDI source via MIDI over USB. Straight MIDI would also be possible with an additional small circuit and some minor firmware changes. This initial version can respond to all 128 MIDI notes, and pitch bends +/- 2 semitones. As it can produce only four simultaneous notes, and each drive has a different range and tonal characteristics, best results are obtained by arranging compositions by hand. However, it features two modes of operation: in one mode, MIDI channels 1 through 4 are played directly on floppy drives 1 through 4. In the other mode, all 16 MIDI channels are read, and notes are "intelligently" divvied out on a first-come, first-serve basis. "Note stealing" ensures that melody lines sound, but chords are often cut short. One or the other produces acceptable results for many unmodified MIDI files straight out of your favorite media player. I apologize for the poor video quality. :) *** Update Feb. 10, 2011: Wow, I just want to give a HUGE thank-you to every one of you for the overwhelmingly positive response! It truly means a lot to me. I'm reading all your comments, and I've been answering individual questions--but due to popular demand, I will be posting a web site with ...
