Johann Sebastian Bach was better known as a virtuoso organist than as a composer in his day. His sacred music, organ and choral works, and other instrumental music had an enthusiasm and seeming freedom that concealed immense rigor. Bach's use of counterpoint was brilliant and innovative, and the immense complexities of his compositional style -- which often included religious and numerological symbols that seem to fit perfectly together in a profound puzzle of special codes -- still amaze musicians today. Many consider him the greatest composer of all time.

As a young man he developed a rather unique talent for writing long passages of pseudo recitative for the organ, trusting the acoustics of the building to 'fill out' the harmony the listener experiences, even though no more than a single note at any one time is being played. The organ wasn't the only instrument where he displayed this skill as with his Cello sonatas.

Although Bach was still quite young, this is one of the last 'major' works that he wrote for organ. (The Passacaglia followed it a year later. The high pitched rhapsodic passage, even if heard in superb, reverberant conditions, is sometimes hard to understand. Many people think the composer slightly mad when he wrote it, The sound is possibly vague, and the direction it is heading is often found to be impossible to ascertain. Many are mystified by it and Ideally, it should be played just a little bit slower, and considerably softer - under those conditions, you will actually hear, as if by sorcery, a magnificent progression of sometimes dissonant chords, and the emotional response is often considerable.

Although written for Organ, I created this arrangement for Solo Viola.
