This is arguably the finest, most authentic, and most refreshingly idiomatic piano version yet of Bach’s famous organ Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565. Hall’s reading is a culmination of his many years as an organist, virtuoso pianist, and Bach scholar with a specialty in tempo conventions in Bach and the Baroque. The most popular piano versions of the Toccata and Fugue, Busoni and Tausig, are 19th-century style “arrangements” rather than “transcriptions” which distort Bach's original organ version making these arrangements extremely difficult for most pianists due to all the unnecessary additions. Relying on a rare combination of scholarship and romantic passion, Hall's transcription makes Bach’s masterpiece no more difficult than it needs to be for all pianists, from students to seasoned professionals. Includes dynamics, fingerings, pedaling, expression, tempo and metronome marks, and an illuminating introductory essay which explains Bach’s ingenious temporal plan among the three sections.
