THE ART OF FUGUE 

J.S. Bach – Art of Fugue BWV 1080 / with an interlude for spoken voices by Itamar Moses

Brentano String Quartet (Mark Steinberg, violin; Serena Canin, violin; Misha Amory, viola; Nina Lee, cello)
Performance Installation Design: Gabriel Calatrava
Author: Itamar Moses
Choreographer: John-Mario Sevilla
Featuring the Art of Fugue dancers
Reader (pre-recorded): Michael Stulhbarg

Experience the brilliant Brentano Quartet and one of the cornerstones of western music in an entirely new way as they elucidate and visualize the fugue in their performances of one of J. S. Bach’s final works. This “performance installation” created by the Brentano Quartet, engineer Gabriel Calatrava and choreographer John-Mario Sevilla was co-commissioned by Da Camera and New York’s 92nd St Y. The set, and the choreographed movements of a corps of dancers, illuminate the themes and counterpoints of Bach’s masterpiece, performed live by the Quartet.
