Johann Nicolaus Forkel - (1749-1818)

''The general feeling of mankind has found in Fugue the highest and most dignified masterpiece of musical art that is worthy to be brought before posterity. But in our preoccupation with the ephemeral and the shallow in music, this paraded without end, we undermine ourselves, our very notion of what music is.’.

(J.N. Forkel - Brilliant German music historian, theorist and bibliographer. Internationally regarded as one of the founders of modern musicology).

J.S. Bach
Little Fugue in G Minor
