Fugue in Eb, WTC – Vol. 2 BWV 876 (J.S. Bach), 4.22

Fugue in Eb major WTC – Vol. 2 (BWV 552) (orch. Aug. 2008) is a piano solo by Johann Sebastian Bach from Book 2 of The Well-Tempered Clavier.  This orchestration brings out with full clarity the themes, subjects, tonal answers and strettos that form the highly intricate structures of all of Bach’s impressive compositions.  This fugue is scored for full orchestra with some additional flair in much the same style as Stokowski’s orchestral transcriptions of the master’s keyboard works that lend themselves to easily to full and brilliant orchestrations.
