Bach- Toccata and Fugue in D minor

In music today we were introduced to Bach who lived at the same time as Handel and he also wore a wig. He had 20 children! We talked about the organ that he wrote music for. We listened to his music in a mindful way and this is what we observed:

Marnie: It sounded like it should have been the end when it was actually the start.

Manou: It sounded like music from a funeral.

Theo: It sounded like the musician was playing 3 notes at once.     (We then talked about chords)

Yusuf: It sounded mixed up like it had been put back together in a new order.

Olivia: I thought it sounded scary.

Luca: It sounded like there was an argument going on between the left hand and the right had.

Marlo spotted the silences in between the music.

Here is video of the music I will show you tomorrow to demonstrate what the organ looks like, how the hands work together and how to play the chords:  Bach – Toccata and Fugue in D minor
