Leopold Stokowski (1882-1977) began his musical career as an organist in London. He later turned to conducting, eventually coming to the United States. His illustrious career included a long association as conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Stokowski orchestrated many of Bach’s keyboard works, most notably the Toccata and Fugue in D minor. He recorded his arrangement with the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1927. The work became even more popular when it was included as the opening piece in the Walt Disney film, Fantasia.
