 Donald Tovey piano


Bach: The Art of Fugue in the string quartet version by Roy Harris The Roth Qartet with the conjectural completion of the great unfinished quadruple fugue composed and played by Sir Donald Tovey

This is a historic document in more ways than one. This recording of Bach’s ultimate musical statement was made in the USA in 1934 and was issued as a luxury limited edition set in the UK. The Tovey completion was recorded in 1935, and is a must for all Bach scholars.  One of the great recordings of all time.
 

“I have enjoyed this version, mainly for the committed string playing… Decent sound and excellent presentation have enhanced my pleasure.”
