Johann Sebastian Bach: The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080 [2-album set]
Antonio Palareti gives a new version of "The Art of Fugue": romantic and dramatic, mystic and rough together, characteristics that directly lead to its composer, as Piero Buscaroli confirmed on the great essay about Johann Sebastian Bach. Palareti's vision of the greater Bachian work also brings to mind Glenn Gould's pianism with a clear and lucid view at the structure of counterpoints. Buscaroli defined this performance as an instrumental triumph.
The version at onclassical.com is the posthumous one (published in 1751) and consists of 14 fugues (with the unfinished one) and 4 2-voice canons.
