Bach’s Musical Testament Bach’s last – and unfinished – great work takes us into a world of unsurpassed beauty and refinement. Although no specific instrumentation is indicated in the manuscript, The Art of Fugue was probably meant for the harpsichord, as is convincingly demonstrated by this splendid interpretation by Davitt Moroney, who, moreover, suggests solutions to some of the questions the work has always posed.

Davitt Moroney plays a harpsichord by John Phillips, 1980, after Ruckers, 1646, Blanchet, 1756 and Taskin ,1780.
