CLASSICAL OPUS no.52

Johannes Sebastian Bach: “Toccata & Fugue in D minor”

ヨハネス・セバスチャン・バッハ:「トッカータ&フーガ・イン・Dマイナー」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 8 minutes

This apotheosis of pipe organ’s ferocity is not only stately, aggressive, vivacious or fiery.  It combines interlacing melody lines through Bach’s signature counterpoints, even though this piece appears more linear than most of his famed bequest.  It is, however, invariably virtuosic and improvisatory, with the toccata part substituting for a prelude to the fugue.

A REFLECTION

Keenly, without blinking, through pallid, stray

clouds, upon the child in the manger, from far away—

from the depth of the universe, from its opposite end—the star

was looking into the cave. And that was the Father’s stare.
