Composed by Mike Hall. Arranged by Mike Hall. Baroque. 2 audio CDs. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2369).

Mike Hall, Professor of Trombone at Old Dominion University and Assistant Editor of the ITA Journal has released a 2 CD collection of J. S. Bach's ART of FUGUE, BWV 1080, which includes the Contrapuncti 1 through 12. Also included in this monumental musical project are four Canons, three additional fugues and Bach's last work (unfinished), the Chorale "Vor deinen Thron tret' ich hiermit (Before Thy Throne).

Professor Hall has recorded all of the tracks himself, playing on an alto, small tenor, symphony tenor and bass Trombone.

The two disks include over 80 minutes of some of the most brilliantly conceived music ever written. Professor Hall's playing is utterly amazing. These two disks should be in every serious Trombonist's library.

This recording of the twelve Contrapuncti has used the magnificent transcriptions by Ralph Sauer. Mr. Sauer's transcriptions are available in four separate volumes or as a complete collection from Cherry Classics Music.
