    I was hoping that Bach would know—of all composers!—how to compose an authentic, Italian-styled Ricercare, but, alas, Bach does not. Unlike Frescobaldi, Froberger (his student), and even the German, Steigleder, (among others)...What this is is a piece that is like most of Bach’s fugues. So...

    if you want fugal writing this is for you. But if you’re looking for a genuine Ricercar look elsewhere, like the composers I mentioned above.
