Bach - The Art of Fugue - Musica Antiqua Köln (dvd)

In May 2006 mem­bers of Musica Antiqua Köln played Johann Sebas­tian Bach’s Die Kunst der Fuge (The Art of Fugue) for this film pro­ject in various spaces of a museum buil­ding desi­gned by Japa­nese archi­tect Tadao Ando, close to the German town of Düs­sel­dorf. The buil­ding is made of con­crete, glass, and steel. The unique mix of reduc­tion and mini­ma­lism on one hand and visual variety and opu­lence on the other hand makes it a per­fect set­ting for a per­for­mance of Bach’s Art of Fugue.

Since Rein­hard Goebel founded it in 1973, Musica Antiqua Köln was the German ensemble for Early Music. The inter­pre­ta­tion of The Art of Fugue per­vades the history of the Musica Antiqua Cologne Ensemble not just because of its count­less world­wide per­for­mances but also with its recor­ding in 1986 which set a world­wide bench­mark. In the year of dis­band­ment the Ensemble recorded the opus again for the film.

In the film dif­fe­rent para­me­ters like shot size, shot length, per­spec­tive, rhythm or lighting, cor­re­spond with the musical form and dramaturgy.
