    Toccata & Fugue in Dm, BWV.565 (Sauer)

    Baroque. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 is possibly the most famous work in the organ repertoire. It was written as early as 1704 while the composer was in his teens, which could explain some of its unusual features. It first appeared in publication in 1833 by way of Felix Mendelssohn. The first appearance of this work as a transcription and recording for brass came in 1979 by Frederick Mills and the Canadian Brass, becoming an iconic work in the ensemble's repertoire. Ralph Sauer has had a great deal of success with his transcriptions of Bach's works. This work of about 9 minutes in length for 8-part trombone ensemble of advanced performers is brilliantly thought out and can be the cornerstone of a concert program. -the publisher
