So imagine how it must have felt for Helmut Walcha, the great blind German organist, to perform The Art of the Fugue. While that may truly be unimaginable for the sighted, it comes as close as possible to imaginable in Walcha's awe-inspiring performance of the work recorded in stereo in 1956, a performance of such unbearable intensity and such overwhelming concentration that the notion of notes on a staff, the concept of pitches and durations, and even the idea of musical space and. time all dissolve in a universe of pure sound. Passacaglia and Fugue, for organ in C minor, BWV 582 (BC J79). Johann Sebastian Bach.

Bach: Art of Fugue for String Quartet. Glenn Gould plays Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier Books I & II, BWV 846-893. Authentic is yet another. Helmut Walcha was the blind genius who recorded Bach's entire organ output FROM MEMORY. That feat in itself deserves a medal of some kind.

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 (1685–1750). Written in the last decade of his life, The Art of Fugue is the culmination of Bach's experimentation with monothematic instrumental works.

The Art of Fugue is a statement so ambitious, so all encompassing, so effective, and thus so revolutionary that it’s hard not to be astonished by it. Like many treatises which aim to demonstrate the properties of their subject, think Plato’s Republic or Descartes Critique of Pure Reason, Bach’s Art of Fugue is a grand essay composed to demonstrate the beauty inherent in counterpoint. By the time Bach began work on his treatise in the early 1740’s, a new style, the Galant, had already seized the musical spotlight from Bach’s Baroque for some twenty years.
