About the Event

Variously described as pinnacle, apotheosis, monumental edifice, even mystical masterpiece, JS Bachʼs The Art of Fugue demonstrates one man’s astonishing ingenuity in transforming, over and over again, one musical theme. In an absorbing and intimate performance, The Musical and Amicable Society perform in the round on instruments that Bach would himself have known, weaving Jan Zwickyʼs poem of the same title gently between movements and illuminating an intricate interplay of voices in poetry and music. 

Generously supported by the Continuo Foundation.
