BWV No. of Bach's "Prelude and Fugue in A minor"
By David Sharpe

Ampico roll number 65043, "Prelude and Fugue in A Minor," although
listed on the roll and in Obenchain's book as "Suite 1 No. 1," is
actually an organ prelude and fugue, BWV 543, arranged for piano
by Liszt.  Wikipedia says there is an alternate version, BWV 543a.
An organ performance of it is on YouTube at

  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3mhb0pqACI 

Apparently Liszt arranged six organ preludes and fugues for
piano, issued as a set S. 462, numbers 1-6, so calling it
"Suite 1, Number 1" may be fairly accurate.  At
http://imslp.org/wiki/Prelude_and_Fugue_in_A_minor,_BWV_543_(Bach,_Johann_Sebastian) 
is a piano recording (and sheet music) of the piece, but there are
several arrangers and I am not sure this is the Liszt version.
