Often performed as an organ solo, Bach's Art of Fugue is here arranged for 16 strings, 4 winds, harpsichord and a small positive organ by Stephan Mai, Xenia Löffler and Raphael Alpermann. The Akademie für alte Musik Berlin performs live on period instruments at Radialsystem, a performing arts venue in Berlin. The final contrapuctus is incomplete, as it was left by Bach. The fascinating video involves very specific light and camera work to enhance the experience for the viewer. In The Tracker George Bozeman raves, "Viewing and hearing this DVD is an ecstatic experience. Don't hesistate to get a copy. You'll want to view it over and over."*
