5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, Jan. 13 2004
This review is from: Bach: the Art of Fugue (Audio CD)
Baroque string quartet and harpsichord share the contrapuncti. The quartet playing is definitive, with natural and loving playing of the individual lines and at the same time great precision of ensemble and unity of mind. A very considered performance, which seems to have left no note or texture to chance. Playing is focused throughout - on the notes, but at the same time on the great longing of the music; the searching harmonies not finding resolution until the final D major chord, added here to complete a work left incomplete by Bach's death - the players taking the duty of closing Bach's eyelids. Without laying out the object of this longing, this performance goes as far as can be gone.
