Toccata and Fugue

Wed 15/05/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €

Introduction

Used for years as the music in horror films, Bach’s organ piece was given new life in the hands of legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski. The orchestral arrangement is familiar from the opening scene of Disney’s Fantasia as played by distorted shadows. Swiss conductor Mario Venzago takes the helm for his countryman’s darkest symphony, which won’t leave even the most hardened listener cold.
