Composer and arranger Bjørnar Utne-Reitan has turned one of the most famous TV themes ever written into a perfectly balanced fugue.
When you think of a fugue (and we think of them often), it’s usually a delicately crafted interlocking work of genius, based on an original theme. Well, because of the internet and geeks, this is now not always the case.
