      Bach: The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080: Contrapunctus 1 (2:57); Contrapunctus 2 (2:52); Contrapunctus 3 (2:36)

      Les Voix humaines Consort of Viols

      Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Art of Fugue (Die Kunst der Fuge), one of the peaks of the Baroque contrapuntal style, also turns out to be one of the most enigmatic works in the history of music. Though composed as a series of fugues on the same subject, Bach did not specify the instruments that should play them. Les Voix humaines viol consort has recorded its own version of Bach’s unfinished final work.
