To me the most amazing thing about the Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C major by Bach is how difficult it is to play this piece. It's like learning to stand on your hands.
To observe an organist playing BWV 564 is the same as being asked "what happened when you lost control of your balance?"
"Well, I was trying to do this thing with my hands, dangled with my feet at some point and in the end my body tumbled down completely exhausted."
In order for you to avoid these troubles, Ausra and I have prepared a PDF score of this piece with complete fingering and pedaling for ideal articulation. We're offering a 50 % discount until August 10.
