Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750)
Toccata und Fuge in d minor BWV 565 for flute solo
The Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV 565 for organ are among the most famous works by Johann Sebastian Bach. However, the often monophonic melody could indicate that the work was originally planned for solo violin. One of the most fascinating things about a melody instrument is that it uses the acoustics of a room to create the impression of harmony. The arrangement by Jean-Claude Veilhan fully exploits the tonal range and the many expressive possibilities of the flute.
