... at his canonization? I'm almost certain that he would be flabbergasted at the idea of somebody performing the entire "Kunst der Fuge" as the centerpiece of a public concert, with an awed audience of ticket-buyers. I needn't mention how utterly boggled his brain would be at the possibility that three little wafers of plastic could preserve and make universally available both his Art of Fugue and his Musical Offering.

So what did Bach have in mind for this music? The "Musikalisches Opfer" was certainly intended for performance before an audience, at least an audience of two, one being Freddy the Great and the other being ... well, if you know the story you can guess the identity of the auditor Bach most wanted to impress. "Die Kunst der Fuge", I'm willing to assert, was never conceived as a concert piece, or even as a compendium of concert pieces. It was a scholarly dissertation, intended for the edification of other musician/composers, and to some extent it was Bach's "apologia pro vita sua", an expression of his psychological need to justify his art.

That said, I'm rather glad Bach's intentions have been overridden by Time. I can, and often do, listen to The Art of Fugue straight through, as a single unified "exaltation of notes", like an exaltation of larks. It's the most appropriate of Bach's huge treatises to be performed on various instruments rather than exclusively on harpsichord. I like the Amsterdam Loeki Stardust performance of it on recorders very much. The 'independence' of each voice in the fugues becomes quite thrilling in such a performance by a consort of matched instruments. Honestly, a performance of all twelve contrapuncti and four canons on a single harpsichord, however capably played, can exceed my attention span.

For some reason Amazon carries Messori's Art of Fugue and Musical Offering in 3 volumes at $8.99 each, when all three can be purchased in this single volume at a budget price. The CD-ROM, by the way, is not interactive, it only includes a booklet with some interesting liner notes.

I have been collecting AoF recordings for many years and this is one of the less exciting reads I've come across. Matteo Messori is a talented artist but his attempts at impressing us as a harpsichordist, organist and chapel master in 3 different works (the canonic variations on Vom Himmel hoch for organ being the third one) are unconvincing. He seems to follow on Gustav Leonhardt's footsteps in terms of phrasing but his tempi are way too slow. His BWV 769 sounds choppy, as if he wasn't in full control of the instrument. BWV 1079 is a bit more successful in spite of the dragging tempi, particularly the Trio Sonata. If you're new to the AoF, this version may bore you to tears. Menno van Delft's recording on harpsichord and Pierre-Laurent Aimard on piano are much better choices, not to mention the countless versions for different ensembles.
