Johann Sebastian Bach was better known as a virtuoso organist than as a composer in his day. His sacred music, organ and choral works, and other instrumental music had an enthusiasm and seeming freedom that concealed immense rigor. Bach's use of counterpoint was brilliant and innovative, and the immense complexities of his compositional style -- which often included religious and numerological symbols that seem to fit perfectly together in a profound puzzle of special codes -- still amaze musicians today. Many consider him the greatest composer of all time.

Some reference works list this fughetta as being of doubtful authorship. If J.S. Bach did indeed compose this short piece -- and he seems the likeliest candidate -- he may well have intended it as a pedagogical work, like his Little Preludes (12) and Little Preludes (6), which date to or around the period of 1717-1720. This Fughetta in C minor is a relatively simple piece for the performer, but like most of the composer's instructive works, also offers something for the listener. It opens with a simple theme, which at first almost sounds like a practice scale, but the music quickly expands on this seemingly unpromising beginning and takes on a lively, colorful manner, with jaunty little trills and other ornamentation. The fugal writing, while also rather simple, blends perfectly and the left-hand part often emerges as the main line. As the work progresses, it does develop a measure of complexity and seems on the verge of further thematic expansion when it abruptly ends. This fughetta has a duration of a bit less than two minutes and, its question of authorship notwithstanding, will prove quite interesting to many listeners
