Of all the memorable pieces that J.S. Bach composed, perhaps one stands out a little more than the rest - the famous Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, one of the most well-known and recognizable works in the organ repertoire. As with much of Bach's music for organ, no autograph manuscript exists, but the probable time of composition is between 1703 and 1707.
The similarity of the tone production and timbre of the flute to that of the organ makes this arrangement compatible for the flute orchestra. In this arrangement, some of the musical lines are reconstructed to overcome the flute's technical limitations and facilitate the melodic flow.
