Robert Tiso's Glassy-Eyed Version of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D

As you may have noticed, I have a keen interest in new and different approaches to old favorites. My Mom would tell you it's just my short attention span, which apparently made traveling long distances with me somewhat trying, which accounts for my always looking for something new on the horizon. Where was I? Oh yes. I was looking for some information on Bach's Toccata and Fugue in d, BWV 565 when I ran across an amazing performance. Thousands of performances and recordings have featured this Bach fave, but this one really caught my ear. I lift a toast, (a glass, I believe, is in the same key), to Robert Tiso, who is the artist in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKRj-T4l-e8
