The Fugue in G minor is a musical composition, possibly for the lute, written by Johann Sebastian Bach shortly after he moved from K├Âthen to Leipzig in 1723. Bach extracted the second movement from his Sonata No. 1 in G minor for solo violin, BWV 1001, written in 1720, and rewrote it; it is not clear that it was intended for the lute.

In music, a fugue is a contrapuntal compositional technique in two or more voices, built on a subject that is introduced at the beginning in imitation and which recurs frequently in the course of the composition. This fugue is frequently performed on violin, guitar, piano, even lute today. The guitar arrangement is based on Frank Koonce's book. It is selected as one of RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) Associate Diploma (ARCT) repertoire. The Associate Diploma (ARCT) and the Licentiate Diploma (LRCM) are the highest academic standings awarded by the RCM Certificate Program.
