Bach to the Future: The Legacy of the Fugue 

Johann Sebastian Bach is the greatest composer of all time. However, it took another Leipzig composer, Felix Mendelssohn, to lead a revival of Bach's music, resulting in universal appreciation and admiration. Mendelssohn's fascination with Bach's music reveals itself in his own compositions with references to specific works and adaptations of baroque forms he had learned to love through Bach. 

This period instrument program of works by Bach and Mendelssohn is played by the Diderot Quartet, the members of which are recent Juilliard graduates.

 

PROGRAM:

Johann Sebastian Bach - Art of the Fugue, BWV1080 (excerpts)
Felix Mendelssohn - Fugue in Eb major, Op. 81 No. 4
Felix Mendelssohn - No. 2 Op. 13 in A minor
