Prelude and Fugue in c minor, BWV 871, J. S. Bach, arr. Rudolf Kämper
Trio Sirènes (Marcia McHugh, flute; Karin Brown, viola; and Jacqueline Pollauf, harp) perform J. S. Bach's (1685-1750) Prelude and Fugue in c minor, BWV 871. This is from the second book of Bach's monumental work, The Well-Tempered Clavier. Rudolf Kämper (b. 1976) arranged the work for Trio Sirènes. As the work was originally for solo keyboard, he not only divided the part up between the instruments, but also expanded upon it, in some instances using harmonies that are decidedly of the 21st century.
