Musical Offering – J S Bach (one of his last works : Two Fugues, a Trio Sonata & Ten Canons - CSD 3704)

£5.99

Product description

(featuring soloists : harpsichordist Lionel Rogg & flautist Jean Claude Hermenjat. both backed by the Geneva Quartet, comprising : violinists Regis Plantevin & Mireille Mercanton ; violist Andre Vauquet ; and, cellist Francois Courvoisier)

“The Musical Offering”, containing some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s last and greatest utterances, owes its origins to a musical-oriented meeting between Bach and the King of Prussia, in May 1747. Frederick II (“The Great”) played an original theme on the pianoforte for Bach to improvise on, with the composer improvising so well, that not only “all assembled were filled with astonishment”, but Bach set down the beautiful theme on paper, as a regular fugue.

“The Musical Offering” that developed out of this theme, comprises two Fugues (- called “Ricercars” -), a Trio Sonata in four movements, and ten Canons. On the reverse sleeve, more detail is given on each part of the composition.
