A little fugue for six Bb Clarinets, inspired by a J. S. Bach Fugue.

Great piece if you can find 5 other players to fugue along with!

This arrangement for 6 Bb Clarinets comes from J. S. Bach’s miscellaneous preludes, fugues, fantasias and toccatas for keyboard. The original Fugue in B-flat Major, BWV 954 (which is an arrangement itself that Bach made from J.A. Reincken: Hortus musicus); is a delightful work!

In music, a fugue is a contrapuntal compositional technique in two or more voices, built on a subject (a musical theme) that is introduced at the beginning in imitation (repetition at different pitches) and which recurs frequently in the course of the composition. It is not to be confused with a fuguing tune, which is a style of song popularized by and mostly limited to early American (i.e. shape note or "Sacred Harp") music and West Gallery music. A fugue usually has three main sections: an exposition, a development and a final entry that contains the return of the subject in the fugue's tonic key. Some fugues have a recapitulation.
