And finally …
The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, is a piece of organ music written, according to its oldest extant sources, by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750). The piece opens with a toccata section, followed by a fugue that ends in a coda.
Toccata (from Italian toccare, literally, “to touch”, with “toccata” being the action of touching) is a virtuoso piece of music typically for a keyboard or plucked string instrument featuring fast-moving, lightly fingered or otherwise virtuosic passages or sections, with or without imitative or fugal interludes, generally emphasizing the dexterity of the performer’s fingers.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toccata_and_Fugue_in_D_minor,_BWV_565
This piece of music was included in Walt Disney’s Fantasia. Fantasia is an animated musical anthology film released in 1940. It consists of eight animated segments set to pieces of classical music conducted by Leopold Stokowski, seven of which are performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra.
