SKU: [6009D,E]

In 1704 Johann Sebastian Bach composed the programmatic keyboard Capriccio in B-flat 'sopra la lontanezza del suo fratello dilettissimo' ('on the departure of a beloved brother'). It is quite unusual among his works for its detailed titling of six movements commemorating his brother's departure by coach. The last two movement, 'Aria di postiglione' (Coachman's Song) and 'Fuga all' imitazione della cornetta di postiglione' (Posthorn Fugue) are transcribed for woodwind quintet.
