Abstract [en]

For many organists in the earlier twentieth century, Karg-Elert produced the most 'modern' music they were likely to play. In this article, the focus is on Karg-Elert's transcriptions of Bach, mostly but not entirely of his keyboard music (collected in two volumes, 1911). The kinds of additions he might make to them plus the various details of their performance (registration, tempo, articulation etc) are traced with respect to the kind of three-manual organ he had in mind. With the D minor keyboard toccata (BWV 913), the turned a relatively modest clavier piece into a full-fledged Romantic organ work on the grand scale. The music of Bach offered, according to Karg-Elert, 'the fortunate master of the modern organ uncommonly rewarding problems'.
