Description
This is an arrangement for saxophones of the Fugue by J.S.Bach from the Fantasia & Fugue in G Minor (BWV542), and a perfect example of the genre whose definition is 'music where strands of melody are woven together into a rich texture'. It is generally agreed that Bach wrote the whole work for performance in Hamburg when he went there from Weimar in 1720, and performed for the 97-year-old Hamburg organist, Reinken. The original Fantasia was derived in style from Buxtehude, but the theme of the jolly Fugue featured here is based on one by Reinken himself - or is at least a tribute to the old man's Dutch connections. . Whatever the history of the music, in this arrangement the players are driven at a furious pace from bar 1 to bar 229, the melody line artfully dovetailed between all the parts, making for a piece that demands playing again and again.
