"The album's centerpieces, the Art of the Fugue, does not disappoint, as we are introduced to a diverse array of personalities . . . there is a panoramic objectivity in his playing: the briskness, when combined with fluidity and a velvety tone, lets us hear how seamlessly all the voices work together." — The Classic Review

Bach: The Art of Life explores the scientific, emotional and spiritual dimensions of Johann Sebastian Bach's cosmos. Centered around Bach's late, mystical masterpiece, The Art of the Fugue, Trifonov's project investigates the man behind the myth — a genius of humility and humor, whose family, loves, losses and devotion inspired what Daniil Trifonov calls "some of humanity's most emotionally rich and fascinatingly sophisticated expressions in music."
