Saturday musical fun: “Bach Panther” by Stéphane Delplace

I saw this on the “Mezzo” channel in a European hotel room once. Stéphane Delplace takes Henry Mancini’s “Pink Panther theme”, and uses it as the subject for a very Bach-esque fugue — it is clearly inspired by the G minor fugue from Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier, the theme of which has some vague resemblance to the Pink Panther.

Enjoy!
