Bach, J. S. – Contrapunctus 10 from “The Art of Fugue” for Brass Quintet.
J. S. Bach’s massive work, The Art of Fugue, is a summation of his powers as a composer of contrapuntal music. Each fugue is a masterpiece in its own right.
Number Ten is a four-voice, double fugue with use of stretto. A new theme is introduced that combines with the original “Art of Fugue” theme, this time inverted. Double counterpoint is used at the interval of a 10th. About 3 minutes in length.
