great compositions/performances: Johann Sebastian Bach – Fantasy and fugue in G minor BWV 542


Johann Sebastian Bach – Fantasy and fugue in G minor BWV 542

Franz Hauk at the Great Klais Organ of Liebfrauenmünster Ingolstadt

*****From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia*****
The Great Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, is an organ prelude and fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach. It acquired that name to distinguish it from the earlier Little Fugue in G minor, which is shorter. This piece is not to be confused with the Prelude and Fugue in A minor, which is also for organ and also sometimes called “the Great”.

It was transcribed for piano by Franz Liszt as S.463.

Robert Huw Morgan plays Bach’s Fantasia and Fugue in G minor on the Fisk-Nanney organ at the Stanford Memorial Church in Stanford, California.
