It’s October and time to get ready for Halloween and find some scary music. On Sunday I went to an organ concert featuring the brand new Forbes Pipe Organ at the Cohan Center at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. The featured organist, James Welch, played “Introduction and Passacaglia in D minor by Max Reger. He introduced the piece by saying it was October and time for something in D minor. (A little musicial humor) Everyone knows about the Bach Toccata and Fugue in D minor (BWV 565). If you’ve never heard the entire piece and want to watch how it’s played on a real pipe organ check out this clip: Bach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor It is probably the most famous organ piece in the world. Who hasn’t been to a Halloween party without it? Since the Bach had been played at the inaugural concert in June, Welch chose the Reger piece. It may be my new favorite October music.
