  • Bach, Johann Sebastian (Hornek)

    Contrapunctus 12-1, from Art of the Fugue, BWV.1080 (Hornek) [210.11 or 211.01]

    Baroque. Twelfth movement (BWV 1080, Nr 12-1) of Bach's final opus. Originally written in 4-part SATB open score form, and now believed to have been intended for performance on the harpsichord. There are two Contrapunctus 12's - one in "recto" or forward motion (this item), and one in "inverso" or inversion (item 70079), where the pitch material is mirrored (upside down). Contrapunctus XII Rectus is thus an example of a mirror fugue. The trombone part is labeled for euphonium, but is absolutely performable upon trombone. As performed by the Harmonic Brass of Munich, Germany. -cdp
