The World's Greatest Music
Katherine introduces the three undisputed giants of the Baroque era - and the music that everyone should have in their collection.
Bach was best known during his lifetime as an organist but also as a composer of organ works. Many will be familiar with this piece’s three dramatic opening flourishes followed by the low, growling pedal note underneath a huge, rolling chord. The Toccata is like an improvisation and has many features that are unusual for an organ work of its time. ‘I have a hunch that many organists till this very day like nothing better than to wrap their fingers – and their feet - around Bach’s compositions,’ says Katherine.
