Extra Information Bach's authorship of this work is disputed. One possible alternative author is Johann Peter Kellner; see below, Comments


Misc. Comments

  • As Kellner was 3 years old in 1708, composition date should be regarded as quite uncertain really - Schissel  
  • It may be that the Toccata and Fugue is based on an improvisation by Bach and noted down by one of his students.
  • On the other hand, Grove Music does not consider this to be doubtful, although it has quite an extensive list of doubtful and spurious organ and keyboard works.
