Dover Edition
* This volume features the complete score of J. S. Bach's Die Kunst der Fuge in the edition prepared by Donald Francis Tovey.
* Originally published by Oxford University Press in 1931, Tovey's edition presents the 14 fugues plus the four canons in open score, allowing readers to follow each individual voice.
* Furthermore, Tovey completed the unfinished final fugue, reintroducing the principal theme of the work's opening fugue to create a quadruple fugue.
* In addition to the complete score, this edition features Tovey's extended commentary on each of the fugues.
* Entitled A Companion to The Art of Fugue, Tovey's commentary was originally published separately from the score.
* This edition includes the commentary within the same volume as the music.
* The commentary outlines the contrapuntal devices employed in each of the fugues as well as keen observations on Bach's technical craftsmanship.
* In addition, Tovey offers insights into the performance of these fugues and suggestions for their programming.
* Pianists, organists, and all lovers of chamber and Baroque music will appreciate this inexpensive single-volume edition of one of Bach's finest works and a classic commentary.
