    Extraordinary ...
    It was as fascinating to watch Gould's hands over the piano than to listen to his music.
    I dare say that this man certainly adds to Bach's music .

    IMO, the greatest musical achievement in all of human history.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_Fugue



    The Art of Fugue or The Art of the Fugue (original German: Die Kunst der Fuge), BWV 1080, is an incomplete masterpiece by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750). The work was most likely started at the beginning of the 1740s, if not earlier. The first known surviving version, which contained 12 fugues and 2 canons, was copied by the composer in 1745. Bach's second version was published in 1751 after his death. It contains 14 fugues and 4 canons. "The governing idea of the work", as the eminent Bach specialist Christoph Wolff put it, is "an exploration in depth of the contrapuntal possibilities inherent in a single musical subject."

    Each of the 14 fugues except the final unfinished one use the same deceptively simple subject in D minor.

    Manuscript copies of the Art of Fugue, as well as the first printed edition, use open scoring, where each voice is written on its own staff. This has led to the assumption that the Art of Fugue was an intellectual exercise, meant to be studied and not heard.

    The theory is advanced by the cellist Hans-Eberhard Dentler that the Art of the Fugue was written to display Pythagorean philosophical principles. The arguments revolve upon Bach's friendship with Johann Matthias Gesner, whom he had known in Weimar and who in 1730 moved to the Thomasschule at Leipzig (where Bach was Cantor) as rector. There Gesner taught Greek philosophy with an emphasis on Pythagorean thought.

    Thank you .. again .. for sharing your extensive research in music
    from another age .
    It's a pleasure to discover your posts metaw.
    I am blessed to have you as a guide .
    It was a great wish when I was a child to learn to play the piano.
    However I was never able to bring this dream into reality .
    When I was 16 I entered a small chapel I had found in a village and
    started to play on the organ there ...That was thrilling but only
    short lived as the priest came in to tell me off.
    My other dream was to become a ballet dancer ..That dream I finally
    gave up when I was 22 ! I had become too old by then .

    Love from me
