“So now Faith, Hope, and Love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is Love.” 1. Corinthians 13:13

The Art of Fugue, a cycle containing 14 fugues and 4 canons, is the pinnacle of Baroque polyphony and one of the most sophisticated pieces of music of all time.

Part of the project BACH XXII

“Bach’s music offers us rays of insight into harrowing experiences he had as an orphan, a lonely teenager, and a grieving husband and father. His music illustrates it, which is one of the reasons that gives it credibility and great power. Above all, however, we hear the joy and pleasure of it, as he celebrated the wonders of the universe and the mysteries of existence…”

John Eliot Gardiner
