J.S. Bach: The Art of the Fugue (Kunst der Fuge), BWV 1080 by Kimiko Ishizaka

The pianist who undertakes performing Bach’s final masterpiece, the Art of the Fugue, not only braves one of the most challenging and intense keyboard works of all time, but also confronts the ultimate tragedy of music history; that Bach died before finishing his most ambitious work.

This recording features a newly composed completion to the final fugue, written and performed by Kimiko Ishizaka.
