about

From Kimiko's concert in St John's Smith Square, London, in 2016.
www.sjss.org.uk/events/bach-art-fugue

The pianist who undertakes performing Bach’s final masterpiece, Art of the Fugue, not only braves one of the most challenging and intense keyboard works of all time, but also confronts the ultimate tragedy of music history; that Bach died before finishing his most ambitious work. For centuries, pianists have pondered what Bach had in mind when he began the final triple fugue based on the musical spelling of his name: B-A-C-H. Pianist Kimiko Ishizaka will present a new interpretation of this work, complete with her own composition of the final triple fugue.

Composer and critic Robert Hugill describes the interpretation as “powerful and strongly vivid ... remarkably engaging, flowing beautifully”
