Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he did not introduce new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France.

Fugue in Bb Major (BWV 955) was previously thought to have been arranged from a work by Johann Christoph Erselius. More recent analysis by Karl Heller ascertained that: "The B-flat major fugue, BWV 955, has hitherto been considered an arrangement by Bach of a G-major fugue by Johann Christopher Erselius (ca.1703-72), a hypothesis now disproven by source and textual studies. The G-major version is actually a transposition of an early version (BWV 955a) of the B-flat major fugue; both date from Bach's early years as a composer" — 'Die Klavierfuge BWV 955: Zur Frage ihres Autors und ihrer verschiedenen Fassungen', Das Fruhwerk Johann Sebastian Bachs: Kolloquium veranstaltet vom Institut fur Musikwissenschaft der Universitat Rostock, 11.-13. September 1990 (Koln: Studio, 1995) p.130–141.

Both BWV 955a, 955 discussed (as works in volume 3 of Schulenberg's 2013 "The Keyboard Music of J.S. Bach" - brief BWV955 analysis and discussion. (Schulenberg notes that it is not, pace!! Heller's statement, regarded as a matter quite disproven, but Schulenberg has no problem with 955 being accepted as part of the Bach canon - on the one hand "it will appear in the N[eue]B[ach]A[usgabe] reserved for doubtful clavier works", on the other, "less well documented works have been accepted into the Bach canon".
