Die Kunst der Fuge, BWV 1080 (excerpts) Johann Sebastian Bach
Anamorphoses (excerpts) Johannes Schöllhorn

Anamorphosis. Derived from Greek etymology of a virtually extreme nature, this word conceals a process that might be described as the reversible distortion of an image. Transposed into music, this idea is tantamount to reshaping an existing work. In his Anamorphoses, the composer Johannes Schöllhorn sought to "show aspects of the work you might not expect to find in the original piece." The work in question is none other than Bach's famous The Art of the Fugue. "It is not a compositional interpretation of Bach's music," stresses the composer. "I am trying to look towards the future, from the present and through the past." Come and discover this fresh interpretation of Bach's work, during  the Bach Heritage festival!

On the occasion of the Bach Heritage festiva, BOZAR LITERATURE has asked a number of poets to write a poet on Bach for the publication of "Thirteen Ways of Looking at J.S. Bach".
