An arrangement for brass quintet of one of Bach's more famous preludes and fugues: Prelude and Fugue No. 2 from Book 1.

Note the detailed cues given in each part to allow as much of a "single instrument playing" feel as possible.

Much attention is needed to the balance between the horn part and the trumpets, when it swaps from being with the trombone to being "with" the trumpets; it needs to try to maintain the brightness of the trumpets when they are absent.

The 1st trumpet part in the fugue section, when my quintet played this a few months ago, was found to be a lot easier on an Eb trumpet (although still possible to play on a Bb). Please contact me if you would like the Eb part.
