    Bach - Fastasia & Fuga. in C-Minor

    The Bach Fastasia in C-Minor represents an interesting contrast of the very stern and unusually expressive Fastasia as compared with the lively and flowing companion Fugue.

    As with all of the organ trascriptions there is a great deal of effort expended in picking the voice threads apart and assigned instruments to them that are appropriate for range, coloring and sharing. This transcription is set for a brass choirs of 3T,2H,2T,1E,1B.

    I had never heard these Bach pieces before, very nice rendering, I really enjoyed them! Of course Bach's harmony and counterpoint are wonderful and sound great. The brass sounded great, these were a delight to listen to. Nice work!!

    An enjoyable listen, Gary; the fugue, particularly.

    Sean,
    It is not his most know work but it is wonderful nevertheless. The brass choir is a nice parallel to the organ and provides a refreshing view of these timeless works.
    I have many more of these already posted to the forum and on my web site if you want to hear more examples of brass renderings.
