Four Fugues from the Art of the Fugue (BWV1080) by J.S. Bach
Transcribed for Piccolo, C Flute, Alto Flute and Bass Flute by Kyril Magg
Volumes Two through Six of the Bach Tercentenary Series are derived from several of the most magnificent keyboard works ever written. These transcriptions were created in order to allow this music to become a direct source of inspiration to flutists. Their successful performance will require the players to have a mutual sense of purpose and style modeled on the unified efforts of the separate fingers of a keyboard artist playing the same music. The transcriptions are not intended as flute choir material but as chamber music, in which balances will be attained with more flexibility, and detail heard with greater clarity, if there is only one player per part.
