Bach’s achievement of compositional magnificence, the Art of the Fugue, is often heard played on the organ or the piano. Here the first fugue, the Contrapunctus no. 1, unfolds in a completely new way in the hands of the quartet. Each part is given full attention by its instrument and can be phrased completely freely into its interwoven context.Apollo Musagete also introduces the audience to one of Beethoven’s unavoidable string quartets and the Czech temperament of Dvořák.Apollo Musagete QuartetThe Greek god Apollo was given the epithet of Musagetes as the leader of the nine muses. The goddesses embodied inspiration for music, singing, dancing, poetry and story telling, plus astronomy and geometry.Thus the name of the Apollo Musagete Quartet indicate a broad artistic outlook.
