Nico de Rooij
Johann Sebastian Bach
Excerpts from The Art of the Fugue BWV 1080
String Quartet No. 2
Bach’s art of counterpoint meets Ligeti’s micropolyphonic structures: the Heath Quartet, heard in three concerts over the course of the season that highlight many different aspects of the ensemble’s artistry, explores a multitude of musical textures in this program—from the transparent to the labyrinthine, the rigid to the fluid, the Baroque to the modern.
