Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Toccata & Fugue d-minor The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, is a piece of organ music commonly attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, composed sometime between 1703 and 1707. It is one of the most famous works in the organ repertoire, and has been used in a variety of popular media ranging from film, to video games, to rock music.As indicated by the accepted title of the piece, the Toccata and Fugue is scored in D minor. It is not in C dorian as the key signature supposes, as it was common practice in the Baroque period to write in leading tone accidentals (B flat in the relative major) rather than in the key signature. It begins with a single-voice flourish in the upper ranges of the keyboard, doubled at the octave. It then spirals toward the bottom, where a diminished seventh chord appears, built one note at a time. This resolves into a D major chord, taken from the parallel major mode.
