Bach – Toccata in E minor, BWV 914 – 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.

Beginning of the toccata is missing.
