Default Toccata and Fugue

hey-Hey!!!,
What is considered the best of the Bach Toccata and Fugue digital recordings? Not perhaps recorded in digital, but available in DVD-A or SACD or maybe just excellent redbook CD?

I am upgrading the LF section of the stereo and want to try this one on, not to mention liking the music in the first place...
cheers,
Douglas

Have you tried the Walt Disney re-release of the "Fantasia" Soundtrack

Default Many "Toccata and Fugue"

There are many different Bach "Toccata and Fugue". I assume you're looking for "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor"?. There are even more than one of these.

Try this one: E. Power Biggs / Bach: The Four Great Toccatas and Fugues - The Four Antiphonal Organs of the Cathedral of Freiburg. Note: This is SACD only, not a hybrid.

He plays four antiphonal organs simultaneously. This will really test the low end of your system.

Get it from www.acousticsounds.com or Amazon.com

Or this one: Bach: Toccata & Fugue in D minor; Prelude & Fugue in B minor; Concerto No. 2 in A minor; Prelude & Fugue in D major by Michael Murray on Telarc.
