Bach, J. S. – Contrapunctus 12 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 Twelve is a four-voice, mirror fugue in 3/2 meter—the only fugue in this meter. It uses the original “Art of Fugue” theme in the “Rectus” and then all the voices are turned upside down in the “Inversus”. About 5 minutes in length.
