Fun Fridays – January 17, 2020

The famous “Toccata & Fugue in D minor” (Bach) originally composed for the organ but here performed by the Canadian Brass.

Such virtuosity! If you enjoy brass brilliance, this 10-minute performance is for you!

    That was awesome. I played the French horn in school so hearing the brass perform was great.

    Canadian Brass is one of my favorite groups! Saw them live. Absolutely breathtaking. Words can’t do their performances justice.

    WOW! That was awesome. I particularly enjoyed it because my mom played the trumpet and daddy played the trombone.

    Delightful! The whole family stopped what they were doing to listen with me.

    Brilliant rendition of a great composition! Listening, I was struck anew at how this Bach piece, like so many others, has the structure of a good novel. The main theme starts off the music like a good hook in a story, and then the plot and characters come on, and I could hear the story unfold just as in a novel.

    Right after listening to the Canadian Brass rendition, I listened to the same Toccata and Fugue played by a young German virtuoso on a magnificent and probably very old pipe organ. Glorious music, too.

    Thank you for posting this video.
