  1. Excerpts from The Art of Fugue BWV 1080 - Johann Sebastian Bach, arranged for violin, viola, cello, bassoon and double bass by Hans-Eberhard Dentler
  2. String Quartet in B flat, 'Grosse Fuge' Op 133 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  3. Adagio and Fugue in C minor, for strings K 546 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  4. String Quartet No 3 in F Op 73 - Dmitry Shostakovich

A classic test of a composer’s skills and mastery, the fugue is essentially a ‘round’ – like Frère Jacques – developed to showcase dazzling works of harmonic and rhythmic wizardry. This concert features three majestic examples of the form – Bach’s epic Art of Fugue, Beethoven’s monumental Great Fugue, and Mozart’s effortlessly brilliant Adagio and Fugue – and they are joined by a work from an outstanding twentieth-century master of the form, Dmitri Shostakovich.

“…the greatest piece of music ever composed” Glenn Gould, pianist, on Bach’s final Fugue from The Art of Fugue.
