“ This is an octet adapted from a fully scored symphonic piece in D major. It is of the classical style and uses a theme based off a Bach cantata (BWV 80). This large chamber work employs various textures using the various instruments in different ways. The structure of the piece is loosely based on sonata form, as it possesses both a development and recapitulation section. The first theme group is developed modally whereas the second theme group is developed counterpuntally in a brief fugue-like section. The piece concludes in the same manner as the exposition, but of course in the tonic to comply with traditional sonata form.”
