Each new performance of Bach fugues requires an arranger to choose instrumentation, due to the minimal information left behind by Bach himself.  Most arrangers select a set of instruments, and the ensemble performs the pieces using that palette.

Here the Berlin Akademie Fur Alte Musik take a unique approach by varying the instrumentation and macrostructure to suit the mood and feel of each fugue.  Please enjoy the fresh and unique results on the new release below.

BACH, J.S.: Kunst der Fuge (Die) (Berlin Akademie fur Alte Musik)
