Fuga (Fugue) (incorporating the BACH motif)

1888

   

This work is listed in Prinz but there is no such work listed among Boito’s compositions given in the Oxford Music Online or MGG1. In 1888 the Italian magazine Musica Sacra, organized a compostion competition for the renewal of the organ world of Italy. They chose Boito's theme, "Fede a Bach" ("Belief in Bach"), whose letters in German tone letters should be used as a fugal subject of 9 notes, which included at the end of it the BACH motif.. Marco Enrico Bossi and Guglielmo Zuelli won the 1st prize with entire fugues based upon Boito's theme. Giovanni Battista Polleri also composed a fugue using Boito’s theme.
