Johann Sebastian Bach is often perceived as the most religious of all composers. Spending a big part of his life serving as a church Kapellmeister and writing an enormous number of Cantatas and other religious works, usually convinces the concert goers that all of Bach’s music is inspired by his deep Christian belief. Bach, however, was not only a servant in the hall of God but also a phenomenal Keyboard virtuoso. In this spirit he wrote his seven Toccatas between the years 1708-1714 in Weimar, where he served as an organist and later on as a Kapellmeister. The term Toccata comes from the Italian word “Toccare” which means “to touch”. It usually refers to a swift virtuoso piece that consists of a light “leggierro” touch. Bach wrote Toccatas both as introductions to Fugues (such as the famous organ Toccata and Fugue in D Minor) and as individual pieces. His keyboard Toccata in D Major was written in 1712 as an individual piece and combinesfugal sections, improvisatory virtuoso passages and “recitative” parts – just like the other six toccatas.
