    Bach Fuga In G Minor

    Written for woodwinds and horn.
    It's a wonder how these voices can blend without any dynamic
    markings.

    Gary:

    A great realization of this fugue. And, yes, the voices blend so well together with this instrumentation. Your effort is clear and beautifully done. It was the best 5min and 50sec I've had so far today and it's already 4 P.M.

    Thanks for working this up and posting it for us Bach lovers.

    They blend because it is the art of fugue writing that makes it so. None of Bach's organ works contain virtually any dynamic markings (or phrasing), save a few precious registration suggestions. And yet the voices speak clearly through practically any tasteful registration that one might chose. In your case through the use of woodwinds and the results is excellent.

    P.S. I have posted a whole collection of Bach organ works transcribed for brass and even string ensemble to this forum over the past 5 months and are available on my site.

    My thanks Jack, and Gary
    When I was working on an undergraduate degree at North Texas,
    and working from scratch on learning piano, I really liked the
    Bach Preludes. My teacher allowed me to work on a number of
    pieces which I still can play from memory 45 years later.
    Bach has an ability to write in a language that takes you into the
    music as much as any tone poem-to lead you in high drama.

    I'd forgotten how much I love Bach. When i got married in the University Chapel at Glagow Uni our walking out music was Bach's gigue fugue. think you could sequence it?

    your piece was beautiful. M-D
