This Thursday through Saturday (Oct. 13-15), The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is exploring selections from J.S. Bach's The Art of the Fugue.
From their site:
This season, for the first time in the orchestra's history, the SPCO presents Bach's Art of Fugue, the monumental cycle of fugues and canons left unfinished at the composer's death. The first of two programs, this concert honors The Art of Fugue as the epitome of musical craft by prefacing it with Mendelssohn's Sinfonia No. 12, and Leon Kirchner's Music for 12, a masterpiece of the twentieth-century repertoire.
Here, Patrick Castillo, Director of Artistic Planning, discusses Art of Fugue.
Ticket information and details are available on the SPCO site.
Broadcasts of our extensive Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra recordings can be heard Monday nights at 8 p.m. on Classical MPR stations and webstream.
