This "little" fugue is one of Bach'smost famous and beloved organ works.  Re-imagined for woodwind quintet, itis a challenging and fun setting for this fugue.  The five instrumentstake turns entering with the subject of the fugue, and interplay back and forth with the other instruments.  Thetimbres of the different instruments add a whole new textural dimension to thisalready fascinating work by J.S. Bach.  Iconsidered the need to breathe for each of these wind instruments, whichobviously wasn’t an issue in the original version intended for organ. Thispiece would be appropriate for advanced high school students, college students,or professionals.  It would do well in achamber music concert, a church, or between acts of a larger ensemble concert,perhaps in another location of the auditorium while a (quiet!) set change istaking place.  It would also work well asprelude or lobby music.  The duration isjust over three minutes (or longer if you prefer to take it slower).  Each measure is numbered individually forconvenience during rehearsals.
