The WTF Bach Podcast

The 2nd/3rd Fugues in The Art of Fugue: What is a Clavichord? Our first countersubject!

March 22, 2020

We discuss the second and third fugues from "The Art of Fugue" by J.S. Bach.

We hear them played on a clavichord and a piano, then both arranged electronically with some new insights. 

Topics covered: How quiet is a clavichord? So... what's the vibe in general of The Art of Fugue? Countersubjects, inverted entrances, and the subject beginning to change.
