Bach: Die Kunst Der Fugue
Bernard Foccroulle, organ
Johann Sebastian Bach: Die Kunst Der Fugue, bwv 1080
After having recorded the complete organ works of Bach, Bernard Foccroulle rounds off his musical voyage with the Art of Fugue; Bach himself did not state on which instrument he intended the work to be performed. A true example of ars perfecta, the Art of Fugue is not simply a demonstration of contrapuntal theory intended for musicians adept in refined polyphonic technique; each piece is a small jewel, one whose harmonic language and expression are revealed to all who listen carefully.
