Johann Sebastian Bach: Fugue in G Minor BWV 1001 POSTER
Prepared with the Colorful BACH technique, on the basis of the Urtext edition. Edited by Márta Ábrahám, Barnabás Dukay and Eveline Meier, 2021.
The presentation poster of the Fugue in G minor (BWV 1001) is a special edition of the score included in J. S. Bach’s Three Fugues for Solo Violin: Special Tricentennial Collection – 1720-2020 published by BioBach-Music Publishing.
The full score of Bach’s most popular violin fugue is printed on a single page, making it possible to read the entire piece as it hangs on your wall. Themes, countersubjects and counterpoints are marked with colored notes to help orient yourself within the score. This color coding is meant to facilitate the identification of themes and interludes as well as inversions, stretti and double counterpoint.
Becoming directly acquainted with the structural organization of the piece could be illuminating for a new generation of young violinists, and might perhaps lead to a paradigm shift in interpretation. We recommend the presentation poster as a useful tool not only to all violinists but also to students and teachers of string or keyboard instruments, musicology or composition as well as to all educated music lovers. It is not only Bach’s Fugue in G Minor itself that a musician ought to know after all, but also the logic and order of Bach’s canon and fugue constructing art.
