Notes & Reviews:
On this disc, Philippe Pierlot and the Ricercar Consort perform Bach's Musical Offering, a collection of canons, fugues and other works based on a single musical theme given to him by Frederick the Great of Prussia. The work has its roots in a meeting between Bach and the King in 1747. Well known for his skill at improvising, Bach was asked to play a fugue based on the King's complex theme. Two months after the meeting, Bach published this set of pieces, all based on the King's theme.Notes & Reviews:
