Chamber Works: Bach's Art of Fugue
Tuesday 21 March 2017
Recital Hall West
Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW
Celebrate Bach’s 332nd birthday with us by experiencing a rare live performance of his final masterpiece The Art of Fugue, the very apotheosis of Baroque keyboard style. Its twenty fugues, each using the same theme, explore a vast range of contrapuntal possibility, achieving a profundity of expression unique in the Western musical canon.
On Wednesay 15 March at 4.15pm Daniel Herscovitch will also give a one hour introductory presentation on The Art of Fugue as part of the SCM Musicology Colloquium Series.
