J.S. Bach: Fantasia in C minor, BWV 562

Bach's Fantasia in C minor was originally composed for organ sometime between 1708 and 1717 - during his time as organist (and later Konzertmeister) at the ducal court at Weimar. In 1746, towards the end of his life, Bach started to compose a fugue to follow this Fantasia, but the new addition was left incomplete after only 27 measures. This solemn and imposing work lends itself beautifully to the sound of the string orchestra.

Luigi Nono achieved prominence after World War II as an uncompromising modernist seeking to revolutionize music in Europe. Along with fellow Italians Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna, Nono attended the influential Darmstadt Summer Courses and became associated with other young modernists . . . 


I love your wide-ranging, interesting and very playable arrangements. Please keep doing what you're doing! . . .
