The Second Canon in The Art of Fugue: A canon functioning at two simultaneous intervals!?

July 3, 2020

Rather than moving on to the compound fugues, we have a pleasant visit to the second of four canons from "The Art of Fugue" by J.S. Bach:

Canon alla Decima in contrapunto alla Terza (Canon at the Tenth in counterpoint at the Third)

Topics covered: Aldous Huxley said that Bach is a manifestation of God? How does this second canon differ from the previous canon? What is a 'Cadenza'? So, you can play a canon with a delay pedal, but to what extent?
