Toccata & Fugue in D minor


Composer's note:

Sextet version

"Das Ensemble der Musikschule Lugde" commissioned an arrangement of J.S. Bach's "Toccata and Fugue" to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his death. My response to this challenge was that of excitement because his music is a constant source of inspiration - not only for arrangements but also for original compositions, such as "Bach and Beyond" for piano solo.

The concept of playing Baroque music on saxophones is incongruous to some, but I find the sonorities of six saxophones remarkably organ-like. It received its UK premier by Trinity Saxes at the 6th British Saxophone Congress in November 2000.

Quartet version

Not completed until 2011. This arrangement is similiar, but not the same as the sextet version and therefore the parts are not interchangeable.
The Toccata can be performed separately and is approx. 2.30 mins. The Fugue is approx. 4.30 mins.
