Wednesday Bach Blogging: J. S. Bach on Toy Piano

    Benjamin Buchanan performs a toy piano arrangement of the Prelude from Johann Sebastian Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007.  Recorded on March 21 2016, the 331st anniversary of Bach's birth.

In the video below, "keipyan 1227" plays the last, Badinerie, movement of Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 2, BWV 1067:

Next, a toy piano transcription of the Adagio, from the Concerto No 3, BWV 974, as performed by Jakub B:

Continuing on with more Bach toy piano fun, Sander Terpstra plays the Minuet in G Major, BWV Anh 114, part of the 1725 Notebook For Anna Magdalena Bach:

We'll conclude our Bach toy piano concert with the well known Toccata & Fugue in D minor, BWV 565.  This isn't actually performed on a piano at all, but on a giant foot and whole body controlled synthesizer, called a "floor piano", at a toy store, the sadly missed FAO Schwartz shop in New York City.  Once the world's most well known toy emporium, FAO Schwartz is now gone forever, closed down in 2015 by its new owners and executioners, Toyz R Uz or whatever they're called.
