Fugue in Gm, ''Little'', BWV 578

The Fugue in G minor, BWV 578 (popularly known as the "Little Fugue"), is a piece of organ music in four voices written by Johann Sebastian Bach during his years at Arnstadt (1703–1707). It is one of Bach's best known fugues and has been arranged for other voices, including in an orchestral version made by Leopold Stokowski. Early editors of Bach's work attached this title to distinguish it from the later Great Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, which is in the same key but of longer duration. The fugue's four-and-a-half measure subject is one of Bach's most recognizable tunes.
