The Leading Bach scholar Dr Richard Jones has re-examined the principal sources of this key work from Bach's final decade. Die Kunst der Fuge was left unfinished at the composer's death and deemed by many to be 'problematic'. It has also long been considered a non-keyboard work. In this new edition, however, the two-stave keyboard layout makes the work accessible to modern players and students. It is also enhanced by the editor's extensive analytical and performance notes. Of particular interest to students is the sample graphic analysis of Contrapunctus 8, in which the editor demonstrates the fugue's structure through a commentary in parallel with an annotated score. This publication includes a recording of Richard Jones's edition on CD, performed on the harpsichord by Davitt Moroney. Full details of the recording are given on the CD inlay card.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Moroney's performance is very fine indeed. An extremely fine product and it is difficult to imagine it being done better, especially at the price. * MMA Ensemble *
Fine scholarship and a keen awareness of performance criteria ... excellent two-CD set of Davitt Moroney's performance. ... Given the breadth and detail of material included in this edition, I do think that if you are to buy one copy of this work, this should be it * MMA Ensemble *
Clean text, historical background, CD-performance masterclass, and analysis lesson too. An unmissable bargain. * Music Teacher *
Jones gives a wealth of information and insight into issues of performance practice...I find Moroney's playing wonderfully imaginative and expressive...This edition is full of the most painstaking and thorough research and problematical issues are solved with clarity and transparency. At GBP17.95 it is also a seriously good bargain. * EPTA Piano Professional *
