Johann Sebastian Bach composed his most renowned organ works - the Toccatas, the Fantasia in G minor and the Passacaglia in C minor - in Weimar, in the stylus fantasticus so beloved of his Northern German masters Buxtehude and Reinken. Bach here follows in his predecessors' footsteps in all of these large-scale works: the freely inventive writing in the preludes is linked to the rigor of the fugal construction and so brings them to a majestic conclusion.
