Bach - Contrapunctus IX 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. Contrapunctus IX is a four voice, double Fugue that introduces a new theme that combines with the original “Art of Fugue” theme with double counterpoint at the octave and the twelfth interval. This piece is approximately three minutes in length.
