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.

Bach died in 1750 with The Art of Fugue incomplete, and he left no indications on the manuscript as to the work's instrumentation. Nearly every new recording meets these two challenges in different ways. The six viols of the group Fretwork never attempt to finish what Bach did not - their performance just breaks off mid phrase - while the sound of these unforceful instruments provides a gently neutral medium for such densely wrought music

com/watch?v vyiAdK0dD-w). Excerpt 5 - Contrapunctus 12. . Bach246 KB (download). The final fugue was the last he was ever to write, and also his longest. Although he had often hidden the BACH motif in his music (in German nomenclature it consists of the notes B flat, A, C and B) here – for the first and only time – he overtly introduces it as the third main theme of this massive fugue. It is this fugue which has come down to us incomplete, and the reasons for this are disputed. We can now be certain that it was not due to Bach’s final illness, which was probably late stage diabetes, although we cannot be certain.

This 2cd album has the perfect ensemble performing the music: the Julliard String Quartet (Robert Mann, Violin; Joel Smirnoff, Violin; Samuel Rhodes, Viola; and Joel Krosnick, Cello). The music is performed as though performed in a monastery. It is intimate, tempos are easy & relaxed.
