Bach: Art of Fugue
A complete performance by Fretwork, "the world’s leading viol consort," of this monumental masterwork.
Although J.S. Bach’s Art of Fugue (BWV 1080) was written well after the sun had set on the age of the viol consort, Fretwork thrives in this music, as a kind of single polyphonic organism. By assigning each line of counterpoint to a different instrument, the work’s brilliant structure becomes illuminated from within, without losing any of its cohesiveness. It is to date Fretwork's highest-selling recording, and their favourite Bach programme.
