This arrangement of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor is not to be attempted by the faint of heart; it is a very difficult work.  It challenges a player’s mental and physical stamina while placing high demands on technique.  Some challenges include passages using double or triple tonguing, wide leaps, multiphonics, and wide leaps in conjunction with multiphonics.  The arrangement is well thought-out but difficult to execute.  While many players may choose not to perform this work, it is still a good time investment, particularly for those looking for an alternative to traditional etudes.
