The Art of Fugue: Music of Bach, Telemann, and Marais

Hailed as a “breath of fresh air in the field of early music” (Wales Arts Review), these four friends met while studying in Paris and recognized their shared passions and vibrant musicianship. A hit at the 2017 Festival, they join BEMF this fall from the chapel of a converted monastery in the heart of the Belgian countryside, with a delightful program of chamber music by Marias, Telemann, and J. S. Bach, including selections from The Art of Fugue.
