Dietrich Buxtehude is probably most familiar to modern classical music audiences as the man who inspired the young Johann Sebastian Bach to make a lengthy pilgrimage to Lubeck, Buxtehude's place of employment and residence for most of his life, just to hear Buxtehude play the organ. But Buxtehude was a major figure among German Baroque composers in his own right. Though we do not have copies of much of the work that most impressed his contemporaries, Buxtehude nonetheless left behind a body of vocal and instrumental music which is distinguished by its contrapuntal skill, devotional atmosphere, and raw intensity. He helped develop the form of the church cantata, later perfected by Bach, and he was just as famous a virtuoso on the organ.

Like the toccata BuxWV 155, this toccata in F major, works much like a praeludium in that it consists of an alternation of sections of free passage work and sections of imitative polyphony. Also even more than in BuxWV 155, the sections of free passagework appear to outweigh the sections of imitative polyphony in this piece. There are three fugal sections in the work, two lasting 12 measures each, the other lasting around 25 measures. The other 91 measures of the work are all segments of free unrestrained rhapsodic passagework. Altogether there is twice as much free material as there is imitative polyphony. The preponderance of free chaotic material in this toccata makes it a prime example of Buxtehude's work in the stylus phantasticus, as style noted for its wild improvisatory chaos.
