The Art of Fugue
Amis Musical Circle is a classical music publishing company offering the arrangements, transcriptions and compositions of Kenneth Amis, tuba player of the world renowned Empire Brass. This transcription of The Art of Fugue for concert band includes all fourteen fugues (called Contrapunctus) and four canons that were originally supposed to be part of Bach's last collection (there is also a bonus canon included). At over 93 minutes of contrapuntal music, it offers an ensemble many opportunities to show both its technical precision and musical maturity.
