HK Phil x Tai Kwun: Chamber Music Series | The Art of Fugue

Date & Time

6 Jul 2022 7:30pm - 9pm


JC Cube




Presented by
The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra

When Johannes Sebastian Bach penned his monumental The Art of Fugue, he wished to write down everything he knew about the pinnacle of the art—strict organisation of melodic lines that appealed both to mathematical and aesthetic perfection. This was his last work. Bach has not specified which instruments to play the work, so there existed a lot of renditions in history. In this unique occasion, HK Phil musicians will play a selection of contrapunctus with four trombones. Given the historic connection of trombone in religious occasion, The Art of Fugue will shine with solemnity and awe-inspiring glory.
