Yes, four maestros for the price of none – Johann Sebastian Bach, Karl Richter and ‘Vater und Sohn’ David and Igor Oistrakh!
One of the most recognisable tunes in the whole of the ‘classical’ music canon is Johann Sebastian Bach’s Toccata and Fugue (BWV 565) I think most people will be familiar with it but without being able to put a name to it. Such is the power of Bach’s music.
It must be more than fifty years since I bought my copy of the Deutsche Grammophon recording by the organist Karl Richter. I cannot find the actual recording on YouTube, it may be hidden somewhere but I did find this version by Richter which has the added advantage of allowing us to see him playing with both hands and both feet and all from memory too; no sign of any sheet music!
