Default Organ transcriptions for piano

Fabrizio, do you have any idea how an organ piece can be transcribed for piano? Bach's Toccata & Fugue is a wonderful work but no matter how much I tried, I didn't manage to transcribe it.. I see you also have no transcriptions of it in VSM list. Maybe transcribing it for two pianos will be easier, but it will be less fun to play as a duet..

Hi Miltiadis IV,
yes, we know. Actually we MUST add a transcription of the Bach's Toccata and Fugue as soon as possible. Obviously other organ pieces can be easily transcribed for piano solo.

Thank you again!

Sincerely,

Post Toccata and fugue in D minor

I originally tried to play on piano the organ part, and I was successful for the first 5 pages (until after the fugue), but then the hands overlapped, and it was impossible to play the organ transcription. I then bought the piano reduction, and it sounds quite as nice. Obviously, it doesn't have all the emotional potence an organ would have. Online, there were no good transcriptions, so I went to the actual shop. I suggest "J.S. Bach Toccata e Fuga in Re minore RICORDI" reduced by Pozzoli. Fabrizo, are you italian?
By the way, does this website give free sheet music?

Wink T&F Reduction for piano

Hi mmaestro 007,
Were you asking for the exact name of the publication? Well, it's "J.S. Bach Toccata e Fuga in re minore - riduzione facilitata per pianoforte. Copyright 1972 by Carisch s.r.l. - Milano". (Italian versions are usually very fit, regarding classical music)
I've been looking for a good transcription since ages. And this is it because it mantains the "maestoso" of the original version for organ, without cutting pieces.
