  • In the Legley archive (cf. sources) one can find a photocopy of a fugue for orchestra by Legley which was arranged by Karel "Charlie" Knegtel and a certain Engelen. This arrangement[1] It was probably made for the performance on 5 June 1992 during the Proms concert in the Wijngracht theatre in Kerkrade by the Limburgs Symfonie Orkest and the Metropole Orkest conducted by Fernand Terby.[2]


  • instrumentation of the arrangement[1] by Knegtel and Engelen: symphony orchestra and jazz orchestra[3]
  • time signature:
  • key: e minor
  • duration: ca 3'30"[4]


  • photocopy of manuscript: Royal Conservatory Brussels (B-Bc), no shelf number yet (Legley archive)


  1. 1.0 1.1 For which instrumentation the work was originally composed, could not be traced. In our opinion it is also not inconceivable that Legley only composed the fugue theme.
