Was blown away by this arrangement the first time I heard it. I am not skilled enough to play it myself, but recently bought it for a family member because it is just so good.
I have submerged myself into this song. It brings Bach back to life for me. I was worried a song this fast would be difficult to read but its done very well and I am not struggling with it and I am no expert. There are so many techniques in it that Ive wanted to learn to do well my whole life and now Im learning them! Bach music got me to try to play the piano way back when I was 20 yrs.old. and motivated me to work hard to learn his wonderful works even though the music is quite advanced for me technically. I am self- taught except I learned on an organ starting at age 7, which I still love to play. I am now 61 yrs. This is the most challenging piece I've ever absorbed and Im loving every minute of it. Awesome is the best word to describe it. Truly a Masterpiece! I listen to it several times throughout each day, i have for years. Its captivating! It so exciting, it gives me tingles and makes me smile wide every time I hear it and I cant wait for the day that I play it very well...thanks for your music David. I love some others that you do too.. I plan to learn Incantations. I already have the sheet.. youre teuly gifted much like Bach. I bet he is proud of you!
I have reviewed and played all the arrangements of the Bach D minor Toccata & Fugue arranged for piano that I have found, and this arrangement is the best of them all. Not only is it fun to play, It captures the essence of Bach in a manner of speed, rhythm, and drama that mirrors the original composition. I like it better every time I play it, and I am approaching David's speed.
