The "Kleines Harmonisches Labyrinth" (Little Harmonic Labyrinth) composition is still listed in many works lists as a composition by J.S. Bach. Many scholarsnow recognize it as at least of spurious provenance, and the majority of them assign the work to composer and Bach contemporary Johann David Heinichen (1683-1729), a man well-known in his lifetime but who faded to total obscurity until his rediscovery in the 1990s by conductor and musicologist Reinhard Goebel. The work was probably originally attributed to Bach because it contains the musical representation of his name (B flat, A, C, B natural) near the end of the piece, a motif that appears in some Bach pieces. Other composers also used it to pay homage to Bach.

The piece is in three sections: Introitus, Centrum, and Exitus, tempo Andante. It opens with a dramatic trill, then, while initially retaining the propulsive trill in the background, gradually moves from a festive mood to a hymn-like solemnity. The Centrum section is livelier and features interesting contrapuntal activity. The final section, the Exitus, makes up about half the length of the work. It initially harkens back to the Introitus in mood, but builds to a resoundingly triumphant ending, with sonorities moving higher and higher on the registers, as if reaching to the heavens.

Bach's authorship is doubted by Philipp Spitta and Günter Haußwald; they suggested the piece was possibly composed by Johann David Heinichen, but without any substantial argument or musicological proof. (See W. Schmieder, BWV (1990), p. 546 & 547). However, from a stylistic point of view, the piece sounds much more classical than baroque and could have been composed during the late 18th c. or the beginning of the 19th century.

Although originally written for Organ, I created this modern interpretation of the Kleines Harmonisches Labyrinth in C Major (BWV 591) for Brass Quartet (Bb Trumpet, Flugelhorn, French Horn & F Tuba).
