Contrapunctus XIX with Continuation and Coda
About the work
Commissioned by CoMA and AllcomersMusic with public funding from the National Lottery through the Arts Council of England.
This piece was written for my friends at CoMA. I did not aim at producing a ‘proper’ fugal completion of Bach’s masterly work, already accomplished by Donald Francis Tovey, but – alluding to Busoni’s previous continuation a century or so before mine – continue a kind of conversation with Bach, or recollect his music in tranquility.
