The Art of the Fugue, BWV 1080: Contrapunctus IX à 4 alla duodecima - Johann Sebastian Bach. Helmut Walcha's 1956 recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's The Art of Fugue was the first stereo outing for Deutsche Grammophon, rightly regarded as one of the crowning achievements of the blind German organist who memorized Bach's entire catalog of organ works. Walcha performs on the 1725 Franz Casper Schnitger organ at the Laurenskerk in Altmaar, The Netherlands, one of the best preserved of all Baroque organs its soundboards, keyboard, and most of the pipes are original to the 1720s. Walcha's use of registration renders all of Bach's sometimes knotty and frequently criss-crossing contrapuntal lines in this work completely clear. The Art Of Fugue, BWV 1080: Contrapunctus 5.

The Art of Fugue or The Art of the Fugue German: Die Kunst der Fuge, BWV 1080, is an incomplete musical work of unspecified instrumentation by Johann Sebastian Bach 16851750. Written in the last decade of his life, The Art of Fugue is the culmination of Bach's experimentation with monothematic instrumental works. This work consists of 14 fugues and 4 canons in D minor, each using some variation of a single principal subject, and generally ordered to increase in complexity. The governing idea of.

Johann Sebastian Bach Composer, Helmut Walcha Performer Format: Audio CD. Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Terms and Conditions. Helmut Walcha's approach to 'The Art of Fugue' uses the clarity and variety of colour offered by that instrument as well as the organ's inherent sustaining power to convey Bach's polyphony. The Art of Fugue is composed of eighteen monothematic pieces divided into five chapters, plus one unfinished fugue, each derived from a single four measure line in d minor. The first subject of the first piece is what Bach uses to generate the entirety of the AoF. Earlier I suggested that most people come away from the Art of Fugue with a profound sense of awe. Although this is not incorrect, the draw of music should always come from its sound, and the AoF is a wonderful listening experience. It isnt dense enough to the point of severity, nor complex enough to the point of rigidity lush harmonies abound, singing melodies soar, and above all, clarity features throughout
