Johann Sebastian Bach: The Art Of Fugue: Organ

Instrumental Album | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Organ
Composer Johann Sebastian Bach
Publisher Edition Peters
The Kunst der Fuge is a cycle of fourteen fugues and four canon. In this edition for organ by Edition Peters.

It is to be demonstrated what, phrased by the first Bach-biographer Johann Nikolaus Forkel, „was möglicher Weise über ein Fugenthema gemacht werden könne. Die Variationen, welche sämmtlich vollständige Fugen über einerley Thema sind, werden hier Contrapuncte genannt“. To clarify the contrapuntally structure of the work, Bach scored every voice (all occurringfugues, doule-fugues, play-fugues and more are four-handed at most) on individual staves, meaning scores. Doing this he follows old traditions, scoring polyphonic key-music, which reached its prime-age in the 17th century.

The final sequence by Bach is controversialto this day. The fragments not only cause manifold speculations but is key to meticulous, music-historcal and critical analysis of the sources.
