Fuguetastic!

J.S. Bach: Fugue in G minor (BWV 542)
For members of the Orchestra, here is the original version of the G minor Fugue you played in the summer. I'm sure you will appreciate the organist's skill and for those of you who haven't seen an organ being played up close, here's your chance! What skill!




And for AS and A2 students, here is the fugue along with a simple analysis of subjects, answers, countersubjects and episodes.


This organ is located in Waltershausen, Germany. It's the largest Baroque organ in Thuringia, Germany. Built by Trost in about 1730, it still holds about 70% of the original pipe stock, which means that this recording is probably very similar to the sound that Bach would have produced in his day.
