In a finely produced set, George Ritchie performs the Art of Fugue on the recently built (2006) Richards, Fowkes & Co. organ in Pinnacle Presbyterian Church, Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as additional works selected from his outstanding and highly acclaimed Bach Organ Works Complete played on the Taylor and Boody organ in Worcester, Massachusetts and the Brombaugh & Associates organ in Collegedale, Tennessee, as well as a rendition of the Ricercar from the Musical Offering on a Bedient Organ in Lincoln, Nebraska. The DVD included in the set is a feature length film with Ritchie and Bach scholar Christoph Wolff discussing the Art of Fugue and its placement in western musical history, organbuilders Richards and Fowkes discussing the matching of instruments to Bach's music, and treatments of other issues surrounding the Art of Fugue and Bach’s musical legacy. A 111-minute lecture by George Ritchie completes the video production and includes a detailed introduction to the 20 movements of the Art of Fugue and dozens of musical examples both played and illustrated with the Peters Edition of the score. A superb compilation of scholarly discussion and remarkable music making. CD 1 Richards, Fowkes, & Co.
