The Art of Fugue (or The Art of the Fugue; German: Die Kunst der Fuge), BWV 1080, is an incomplete musical work of unspecified instrumentation by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750). Written in the last decade of his life, The Art of Fugue is the culmination of Bach's experimentation with monothematic instrumental works.

Austere Cerebral Intense Majestic Pure Refined. Bach: The Art of the Fugue, BWV 1080.

The Art of Fugue is a statement so ambitious, so all encompassing, so effective, and thus so revolutionary that it’s hard not to be astonished by it. Like many treatises which aim to demonstrate the properties of their subject, think Plato’s Republic or Descartes Critique of Pure Reason, Bach’s Art of Fugue is a grand essay composed to demonstrate the beauty inherent in counterpoint. By the time Bach began work on his treatise in the early 1740’s, a new style, the Galant, had already seized the musical spotlight from Bach’s Baroque for some twenty years.
