Contrapunctus IX by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Richard Fote. For brass quintet (2 trumpets, french horn, trombone and tuba). Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.18740).
Written in the last decade of his life to explore the limits of contrapuntal music, this challenging selection from Bach's The Art Of Fugue is a double fugue (two principal themes) that progressively increases in complexity. In this 1973 adaptation, all parts include helpful dynamics, articulations and breath marks to help with phrasing and stylistic interpretation. Duration 3:00.
