A masterful edition by Australian musicologist and performer John O’Donnell of the original version of The Art of Fugue.
O’Donnell has reassessed the manuscript in light of the posthumous publication of 1751 and corrected a considerable number of ambiguities and errors. The book is in two parts: the first contains reductions of the original four-staff manuscript to facilitate their performance, while the second presents the original and retains its C, G and F clefs. The canons are also given in their original format and as realised versions. This is an essential book for the study of fugue and for those wishing to play from open scores.
* A new reading of JS Bach’s 1742 manuscript of Die Kunst der Fuga
* Both keyboard reduction and open-score formats (latter retains original clefs)
* Full critical commentary
