Bach Harpsichord Concertos/ The Art Of Fugue

George Malcolm
Description:
Bach's last work, The Art of Fugue, left unfinished at his death, has been shown by many scholars and performers to have been composed for the keyboard, although the first printed edition of 1751 presented the piece in open score, which led to its being mistaken for an ensemble work. Scholars Donald Francis Tovey and Heinrich Husmann, working in the 1930s, and harpsichordists Isolde Ahlgrimm and Gustav Leonhardt in the 1950s, firmly established the work as a harpsichord piece (pedal harpsichord, in Ahlgrimm's case). However, in his 1964 recording Malcolm directed his colleagues of the Philomusica of London (an outgrowth of the Boyd Neel String Orchestra, founded in the 1930s) in English conductor Leonard Isaacs's 1952 arrangement of the work for strings and winds (with some participation by Malcolm as harpsichordist). Leonard Isaacs (1909?1997) was, like Malcolm, a piano student of Herbert Fryer at the Royal College of Music.
