The Yale School of Music presents The Orion String Quartet & Windscape in a performance of Bach’s complete Art of the Fugue on Tuesday, February 12 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall.

The Art of the Fugue, Bach’s study of the fugue form, is as mysterious as it is extensive. Bach did not specify the musical instruments he wrote for, but Samuel Baron’s arrangement for woodwind and string quartet has been called “wistful,” “playful,” “glowing,” and “intelligent” by the New York Times.

In this concert, Bach’s complete Art of the Fugue will be performed by one of today’s most sought-after string quartets and a wind quintet that has won renown for vibrant and inventive performances. The program, which premiered at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, has been recorded on Deutsche Grammophon. The Boston Globe praises the performers as musicians with a “certain aura—that of the fabulously skilled, much sought-after… who can tackle anything.”

This concert is part of the Oneppo Chamber Music Series, directed by David Shifrin, at the Yale School of Music. Morse Recital Hall is located in Sprague Hall at 470 College Street (corner of Wall Street), New Haven.

Tickets are $25–$35, $15 with student ID. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit music.yale.edu or call the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158. MORE
