Bach: Die Kunst der Fuge & Suite for Cello Sollo Nos.1&5

Keller Quartet: András Keller violin I | János Pilz violin II | Zoltán Gál viola | Péter Somodari violoncello |
Anner Bylsma

The two films on this DVD combine some of the most demanding chamber works ever written.
Recorded at the atmospheric Academy of Sciences in Budapest, the Keller Quartet plays a version of Bach’s unfinished masterpiece The Art of the Fugue for string quartet intertwined with works by renowned contemporary composer György Kurtág – a programme that the four Hungarians developed and have successfully performed on international stages.
Anner Bylsma, Dutch master cellist and world-renowned as a distinguished interpreter of Bach’s cello music, plays the solo suites. The suites, on which he has also published an authoritative book, count among the most popular baroque chamber works.
Anner Bylsma plays the famous Stradivarius “Servais” and the disc was recorded in the beautiful village church St Bartholomew of Dornheim in Thuringia.
