Cool site from Northern Arizona University. The real-time visual representations of the fugues and how they work are fascinating and the analyses are stimulating and interesting, not your usual dry musicological insomniac cure. Analysis by Dr. Tim Smith and played by David Korevaar.

My jaw dropped when I first played the video of the c minor Fugue from Book #1. It was mesmerizing to watch the graphics traverse the score whilst simultaneously tracing the animated graphical analysis.

This should be recommended viewing for every lover of Bach's music.

Thank you for making this site available.

Sincerely,

Joe
