The Little Fuguein G minor, BWV 578 is a piece of organ music written by J.S. Bach sometime around his years at Arnstadt (1703-07). The fugue'sfour-and-a-half measure subject is one of Bach's most recognizable tunes. It is in four voices. This arrangement for Flute Quartet (with optional parts for Alto and Bass flute doubling the 3rd and 4th parts)  was among my very firstattempts at writing for the medium of four woodwinds when I was just graduatingfrom high school. Now, older and somewhat wiser, I have revised thearrangement, mainly to give the 1st player a bit of a breather. I hope youenjoy performing this challenging work. You may contact me at
