Bach – Toccata in E minor – Sokolov, Piano

Large parts of the concluding fugue of Bach’s Toccata in E Minor BWV914 seems to be borrowed directly from an anonymous composition discovered in a Naples manuscript. The subject is almost identical. The episodes, however, contain material by Johannes Sebastian Bach that is more refined and complex than anything written by the mysterious Italian. – Grigory Sokolov
