Leopold Stokowski: Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538

Orchestra - Music

The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538, is an organ piece by Johann Sebastian Bach. Like the better-known BWV 565, BWV 538 also bears the title Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, although it is often referred to by the nickname Dorian – a reference to the fact that the piece is written without a key signature – a notation that is uncommon today and leads one to assume the Dorian mode.

The most famous Bach Transcription of all is Leopold Stokowski‘s version of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor. He featured it in Walt Disney’s “Fantasia” and recorded it several times over the years. It is played here in a 1954 television programme in which Stokowski conducted the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
