Lady Gaga's Bad Romance Played as a Fugue on a 250-year-old Organ

Many of you will remember the arrangement of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance played as 3-voice fugue from a few months ago. Here's the same Giovanni Dettori fugue arrangement, played by Matthias Rascher on a 1756 Johann Philipp Seuffert pipe organ in the Maria Limbach Pilgrimage Church in Lower Franconia:

BTW if you're not yet sold on Lady Gaga, take a look at this video of her awesome keyboard skills.

(Thanks, Mona!)

    Absolutely beautiful! Then again, I have been a fan of this type of keyboard music since I was 4 years old.

  2. Wow this is really amazing piano skills (but on an organ) Its always pleasing to hear a different spin of a popular pice of music

    This would be interesting to try with some of my students pieces.
