Toccata und Fuge in d-moll BWV 565

On a beautiful, warm autumn day my cameraman, Ralf Eisler and me went to Mistail. Finally my idea, to play the Toccata and Fugue and to record with image and sound in the church of St. Peter comes true.We spent the entire day on this wonderful place. In the church, it is in october already very cold. My fingers were immediately so tumb that I could not move them so fast as they should. So I had always to go outside to warm up. Although the church is isolated, we had to fight with many noise emissions:  Military aircraft over the territory, the Rhaetian railway runs close by and especially the animals, geese, ducks and dogs.

By the way: The recordings were taken with a SLR.

The Church of St. Peter in Mistail is situated on a small plateau at the entrance to the Schin gorge. It is reachable from a parking lot near the main road at the sign to Alvaschein along a forest path or from Tiefencastel train station in about ten minutes. St. Peter is a Carolingian Dreiapsidenkirche and one of Switzerland's oldest churches.
