The WTF Bach Podcast

That‘s a Wrap on The Art of Fugue. (Season one finale 2/2!)

December 6, 2021

So! We've done it: Looked in depth at every fugue, every canon, solved the mysteries, busted the myths, sent the Bach heretics back to whence they came. And now? Let's just enjoy... 

Topics covered:

The golden sections in other Bach pieces and how this could help us find the golden section here, even in this fugal fragment. 

'God the Father' 'God the Spirit' 'God the Son' as three themes.


THE LAST PAGE ! CLICK HERE to see the 'corrupt' staves on which it would have been impossible to complete such a dense fugue. **Note the staff three from the bottom**
