The WTF Bach Podcast

The First Canon in The Art of Fugue: Where do these pieces belong, and how do they get much more complicated than this?!

April 28, 2020

Rather than moving on to the fifth fugue, we have a brief visit to the first of four canons from "The Art of Fugue" by J.S. Bach:

Canon in Hypodiapason (Canon at the octave). 

Topics covered: What is an octave? Who is 'The Great One'? Why do musicians love Bach so? So... you can play a canon with a delay pedal?
