Posibly my favourite Bach composition. The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, is a piece of organ music composed by Johann Sebastian Bach sometime between 1703 and 1707. It is one of the most famous works in the organ repertoire, and has been used in a variety of popular media ranging from film, to video games, to rock music, and ringtones. As indicated by the accepted title of the piece, the Toccata and Fugue is scored in D minor. It is not in dorian mode as the key signature supposes, as it was common practice in the Baroque period to write in leading tone accidentals rather than in the key signature. It begins with a single-voice flourish in the upper ranges of the keyboard, doubled at the octave. It then spirals toward the bottom, where a diminished seventh chord appears, built one note at a time. This resolves into a D major chord, taken from the parallel major mode. The subject of the four-voice fugue is made up entirely of sixteenth notes, with an implied pedal point set against a brief melodic subject that first falls, then rises. The second entry starts in the sub-dominant key rather than the dominant key. Although unusual for a Bach fugue, this is a real answer and is appropriate following a subject that progresses from V to I and then to V below I by a leap. A straightforward dominant answer would sound atonal and odd in a Baroque piece. After the final entry of the fugal melody, the composition resolves to the key's corresponding major, B-flat, that is held. From there, a coda is played as a cadenza much like the Toccata itself, resolving to a series of chords followed by arpeggios that progress to other paired chords, each a little lower than the one preceding, leading to the signature finale that is as recognizable as the Toccata's introduction. -Wikipedia

Esta breve canción es un pequeño capricho barroco que proyecta toda su belleza en manos de los excepcionales guitarristas Jean-Félix Lalanne, Michel Haumont et Manu Galvin. Es una de las joyas contenidas en la grabación del concierto 'Plutôt guitare', en el que las guitarras redimensionan y potencian las bellas melodías y las letras originales de Maxime Le Forestier. (Estribillo) C'était toujours la même Mais on l'aimait quand même La fugue d'autrefois Qu'on jouait tous les trois On était malhabiles Elle était difficile La fugue d'autrefois Qu'on jouait tous les trois Eléonore attaquait le thème au piano On trouvait ça tellement beau Qu'on en arrêtait de jouer pour l'écouter Elle s'arrêtait brusquement et nous regardait Du haut de son tabouret Et disait : "Reprenez : mi fa mi fa mi ré" (Estribillo) Souviens-toi qu'un violon fut jeté sur le sol Car c'était toujours le sol Qui gênait Nicolas quand il était bémol Quand les voisins commençaient à manifester C'était l'heure du goûter Adieu Jean-Sébastien et à jeudi prochain {Estribillo} Eléonore un jour a quitté la maison Emportant le diapason Depuis ce jour nous n'accordons plus nos violons L'un après l'autre nous nous sommes dispersés La fugue seule est restée Et chaque fois que je l'entends c'est le printemps {Estribillo y fin}

This is me playing Toccata et Fugue in D Minor by Bach. It's also from the 1962 film of "The Phantom of the Opera". It was difficult to keep time and move up and down the bench at the same time so I took shots of myself and recorded the tune later. Enjoy!

My friend Vincenzo Culotta plays my "Lady Gaga Fugue", a piece based on the theme from the song "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga. This should show how counterpoint can be fun and up to date ;) The main idea was to write a "neo-baroque" fugue that would sound both baroque and modern. To give a "modern feeling" I used a special treatment of fourths, fifths, suspensions and rythm.

FAQ J. S. Bach's Contrapunctus 9 from the Art of Fugue (Kunst der Fuge), with conventional score, bar-graph score, and video of hands playing it. Q: Where can I get the sheet music for this piece? A: The score in the video can be downloaded from here: *******www.musanim****/pdf/kdf9.pdf Q: What instrument is that? A: It's actually two instruments: a piano (the one in my living room) and a sampled pipe organ (an Alborn-Galanti Silbermann Archiv). The piano has MIDI Out (from a Moog PianoBar) which was recorded and played back to play the organ. Q: How did you make this video? A: First I videotaped myself playing it, and recorded both the audio (from my Kimball grand piano) and MIDI (from a Moog PianoBar attached to the piano). Then, I rerecorded the audio and MIDI for each of the four voices separately; I did this so that I could color-code the video based on voice and to get a performance that was a little cleaner (it also afforded me the opportunity to add a 16-foot stop to the bass line in a few places). The conventional score is from screenshots from the notation program Sibelius, and the bar-graph score was generated from the MIDI using my own custom software. All these things were assembled in Adobe Premiere and converted to Flash with the On2 Flix converter. Q: I'm having trouble reading the score. A: It's a little better if you watch it in high-quality mode: ***********/watch?v=xY_GMnQvj6E&fmt=18 Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself?

A: Check out this: *******www.musanim****/player/ Q: What is the BWV number for this? A: BWV 565 Q: Where does the toccata end and the fugue begin? A: The fugue starts at 2:51 and the toccata returns at 7:12, but between these two points, parts which are strictly fugal alternate with episodes that are more toccata-like, so it's not 100% clear-cut (like in some other toccata/fugue pairs he wrote). Q: What do the colors mean? A: Each "stop" on the organ was played on a separate MIDI channel, and each MIDI channel was assigned a color. Q: What is a fugue? A: Here is a good introduction: *******en.wikipedia****/wiki/Fugue Q: Can I get a DVD with this video (or others like it)?

A: Here are a couple of places: *******www.musanim****/pdf/ViewersGuideMAM1996.pdf *******en.wikipedia****/wiki/Toccata_and_Fugue_in_D_minor%2c_BWV_565 Q: Why does this piece of music remind me of horror movies? A: Because it was used in the 1962 version of The Phantom of the Opera. Before that, it did not have that connotation. When Walt Disney and Leopold Stokowski used it in the 1940 film Fantasia, they considered it to be a purely abstract piece --- "absolute music" --- which brought to mind expressionistic forms and lines. .
