Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Fagius Bach recordings are well known by now, having been issued by BIS one CD at a time in the 1980s and 1990s... And the performances? I’ll draw a good summary of the whole set from Michael Carter’s praise for The Art of the Fugue, when he inducted it into the Classical Hall of Fame in Fanfare 27:6: “Fagius is an exceptionally gifted performer and his cycle of the Bach organ works for Robert von Bahr and BIS is both respected and envied in the music world. Eschewing idiosyncrasies, Fagius offers us a cleanly articulated but never antiseptic version of Art of the Fugue. The registrations were selected to accentuate the nature and peculiarity of each of the contrapuncti and simultaneously offer the auditor a listening experience in Read more which each voice is clearly audible and never muddied by another contrapuntal line.” Little more needs to be said.

-- James Reel, FANFARE [reviewing BIS 1527/28]
