    Adagio & Fugue, from Toccata & Fugue in C, BWV.564 (Sauer)

    Baroque. Ralph Sauer has taken the final two sections of Bach's great organ composition Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major, BWV 564, and transcribed them for 8-part trombone ensemble. It is about nine minutes in length and appropriate for advanced performers. The Adagio is in two sections. The first is almost cheerful in its minor key, but the second part Grave is dark and brooding. It was used during a satanic ritual scene in the 1934 Karloff/Lugosi film The Black Cat. The Fugue is in 4-voices in6/8 and bounces along nicely till its dramatic ending. -the publisher
