Programme Notes / Performance Details :

I have admired Johann Sebastian Bach’s organ Fugue in G Minor, “Little” – BWV 578 for many years. I felt it would lend itself well to a transcription for mallet quartet, which would provide mallet players an opportunity to perform Baroque literature as chamber music in a concert setting. - Peter Jarvis
