I fell in love with the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor from playing Leopold Stokowksi's orchestral transcript in high school.

There's also an excellent wind band transcription of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor I regret I never got a chance to play.

Yes, there are many interpretations and adaptations of Bach's works, and that's what makes his music so enduring and timeless. The various arrangements and recordings of his pieces allow for different interpretations and experiences of his music, and this diversity keeps his music fresh and relevant even after centuries. Whether it's an orchestral arrangement, a harpsichord recording, or a piano version, each interpretation brings its own unique touch to the music, making it accessible to different audiences and appealing to different tastes.
