Bach's Toccata and Fugue in Dminor - on the accordion

I normally don't care for accordion music, but if you stick with it to at least the 5:40 mark, you'll discover this is a surprisingly virtuoso performance. Bravo.



  1. Very impressive; had I only been listening I would have thought he was playing an organ instead. Definitely puts my Grandad's polkas and Christmas songs to shame...

  2. Bach's Toccata and Fugue is a difficult piece, even for an orchestra. To have pulled it off on the accordion...especially when you have little capacity for hold over notes...its just amazing. The only thing missing was the base line and I barely noticed. This guy deserved way more applause than he got.
