Item Number: AV.7543

Bach composed this piece around 1725 at the beginning of his Leipzig years. The character of the Fantasie is serious and grave; even in the interludes a contemplative mood prevails. Its concerto form is strictly symmetrical: the main theme appears four times with three interludes between. The four-part double Fugue exemplifies Bach's superior contrapuntal craftsmanship as he combines two contrasting themes -- one that's diatonic, rhythmic and agile, and another that consists of a descending chromatic line. This adaptation calls for SAATB saxophones with an optional bass sax.
