Program Notes

The Eight Short Preludes and Fugues (also Eight Little Preludes and Fugues), BWV 553–560, are a collection of works for keyboard and pedal formerly attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach. They are now believed to have been composed by one of Bach's pupils, possibly Johann Tobias Krebs or his son Johann Ludwig Krebs.

- Program Note from Wikipedia

Ronald Moehlmann transcribed the fifth of these Eight Short Preludes and Fugues, BWV 557. Originally in the key of G, Moehlmann transcribed the wind version up a minor second, into the key of A-flat. It is marked "Grave."
