In 1783 Mozart, fascinated by the counterpoint of J S Bach, wrote a Fugue K.426 for two Keyboards. Then in 1788 he re-arranged the Fugue for Strings and added a brief, but beautiful, Adagio. The entire work lasts less than 10 minutes but is a fantastic example of Mozart's late compositional excellence.
