Bach wrote his ,,Art of Fugue"in score and probably regarded it as an art book in contrapuntal guise. This modern piano transcription, based on the Urtext of the New Bach Edition, does full justice to the work's raison d'etre as music for performance. All the known sources have been subjected to a more thoroughgoing musicological analysis than ever before, making this edition supreme in ist field.
