    The Art of Fugue is comprised of 14 fugues and four canons. Though the order of the fugues and placement of the canons is a matter of endless debate, it is clear that Bach had a progression from the simplest to most complex counterpoints in mind when he conceived the compendium. For his recording of Bach’s The Art of Fugue, harpsichordist Sébastien Guillot includes the composer’s early autograph versions. Although Bach’s more familiar revisions generally were for the better, his first thoughts make for fascinating comparison.
