Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Art of Fugue was J.S. Bach's final composition which many justifiably regard as the apotheosis of his legacy. This arrangement by the Musica Antiqua Koln is one of the most austere chamber versions on CD with nearly half of the movements interspersed evenly throughout the performance played by only one or two instrumentalists. In essence, one gets the advantage of listening to both solo instrumental and ensemble approaches here! Incidentally, when this performance was recorded in 1984 many in the group were up and coming musicians rising through the ranks though today count among the most highly regarded period instrument elite.
