Johann Sebastian Bach is and remains the unequivocal king of fugue: known for being able to improvise complex, multi-voiced textures at his organ. His unmatched proficiency in counterpoint and harmony and uncanny ability to weave multiple independent lines seamlessly and beautifully is laid bare in his Art of Fugue — an kaleidoscope of exploration of a single fugal motive and its inversions, transpositions, and digressions.

The USO String Quartet showcases Bach’s Art of Fugue and its lasting influence on the repertoire that comes centuries after him. Enjoy an evocative, passionate, and introspective evening as we intersperse the range of Bach’s inventive and progressive legacy with Mozart, Beach, and more!
