Features
Art of the Fugue BWV 1080 by : Davitt Moroney : Johann Sebastian Bach


Bach's death meant that the Art of Fugue was left unfinished. In his father's manuscript; Carl Philipp Emanuel noted exactly where the last fugue of the Art of Fugue broke off: “While working on this fugue; in which the name Bach appears in the countersubject; the author died.” Our editor Davitt Moroney brings the fugue to a close with 30 supplementary measures. There has been frequent speculation about what type of scoring would be most appropriate for the piece; particularly since Bach wrote the individual parts in score form and left no information about instrumentation. Certainly; strict fugues can be found in any ensemble scoring: this had been normal for centuries. It is remarkable; though; how the cycle can easily be played on the harpsichord or piano – a strong argument for keyboard performance.
