Christophe Rousset offers his version of Bach’s The Art of Fugue, and thus finally tackles the most mysterious work of the German master, a phenomenal and unfinished construction whose instrumentation has unleashed the musicological debates of recent centuries. The performer reveals, behind the prowess of this composition manual, all the virtuosity that it demands of the keyboardist who chairs her. A meditative journey to the heart of the most ethereal composition treatise ever written.
Recorded by Little Tribeca in November-December 2022 at Hotêl de l’Industrie.
