Fantasia and Fugue in A minor, BWV 904
Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 906 [completed by Davitt Moroney]
Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue, in D minor, BWV 903
One of the world's foremost interpreters of Bach, Moroney has been praised for "a sense of a voyage of the spirit" (New York Times) in his nearly 60 recordings. He performs a selection of Fantasies and Fugues both beloved and exotic, including the virtuosic Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue. The Fantasia in C minor is well known, but Moroney has completed and will also perform its companion Fugue, left unfinished by Bach.
