Notes and Editorial Reviews

The last composition of Johann Sebastian Bach's grandiose oeuvre, The Art of Fugue has been surrounded by mystery, some of which is still alive some 260 years after he completed his work. Philosophers, musicologists, composers, conductors and instrumentalists have attempted to uncover the secrets that Bach had hidden in this work, especially in the last fugue he had left unfinished. Balint Karosi, the active composer, concert organist, conductor and harpsichordist is the prizewinner of the 2008 International J.S. Bach Competition in Leipzig.
