Contrapunctus BWV 1080 - 15 20. Contrapunctus BWV 1080 - 17. The Art of Fugue still stands as a model of rare compositional mastery. Moreover, it still has the power to move us, and like all great classics, it has been an object of fascination throughout its history: originally for the complexity of its ‘orgies of counterpoint’; a century later for the deference it inspired as a model; today because its incomplete state means total perfection is unattainable, however close. André Isoir’s classic combines technical perfection with a deeply reflective approach.
As the fugue progresses, Bach ventures into major keys (E♭ and B♭) and the time between the statements increases from 1–3 bars to 7–13. The passacaglia has been transcribed for orchestra by Leopold Stokowski, Ottorino Respighi, René Leibowitz, Eugene Ormandy, Sir Andrew Davis and Tomasz Golka and for piano by numerous composer/pianists including Eugen d'Albert, Georgy Catoire, Max Reger (in a version for 2 pianos), Fazil Say, Krystian Zimerman and Awadagin Pratt.

André Isoir’s classic combines technical perfection with a deeply reflective approach. His interpretation is transcended by a rhythmic impetus, a dynamism, a splendour of touch that are quite simply staggering. The Art of Fugue (L'Art de la Fugue) still stands as a model of rare compositional mastery.
