About

Fretwork

Bach's total mastery of counterpoint, encyclopaedic knowledge of musical form and fascination with the mathematics of music is clearly revealed in his sublime The Art of Fugue.

Fretwork explores the first eleven contrapuncti from the work's first edition of 1751 and crowns the recital with Richard Boothby's completion of the unfinished Contrapunctus 14, a triple fugue for four voices.
