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

While scholars have questioned the authenticity of this little fantasy, this composition exists in a Bach family manuscript, with Bach clearly named as the composer. What's stranger about the piece is its title: "Fantasie duobus subiectis." It promises two subjects, but there are actually three, and that doesn't count the miniscule single-voice toccata that begins the fantasy. The work's main matter is a sober, moderate-to slow-tempo imitative fantasy in which the three voices polyphonically intertwine. This is not a full-fledged fugue, but merely a skillful exercise in counterpoint, different from Bach's famous Three-Part Inventions (Sinfonia) only in its grave nature and the presence of the little opening toccata.
