After having recorded the complete organ works of Bach, Bernard Foccroulle rounds off his musical voyage with the Art of Fugue; Bach himself did not state on which instrument he intended the work to be performed. A true example of ars perfecta, the Art of Fugue is not simply a demonstration of contrapuntal theory for musicians adept in refined polyphonic technique; each piece is a small jewel, whose harmonic language and expression are revealed to all who listen.

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2010

“Foccroulle relishes the colours at his command, eschewing 16' pedal tone, though clearly using his feet to spread the contrapuntal load! The dryish acoustic copes well with the strong registrational juxtapositions...Another hallmark is the judicious choice of tempi. Movements in compound time signatures dance and bounce along with ease.”
