The Art of the Fugue explained by Filippo Gorini
Filippo Gorini is curating a documentary-style series of short films to shed new light on thematics suggested by The Art of Fugue in discussion with eminent minds in the fields of music, arts, cinema and sciences. These will be directed and filmed throughout the coming year by Robert Cibis at Oval Media (well-known for the ard-winning documentary film Pianomania) and streamed on Quebec Baroque.

The Art of the Fugue
This international project, involving three countries, is the first in a series of events that Festival Bach Montreal will produce overseas. Festival Bach Montreal has collaborated with OVALmedia on a series of digital projects that will be captured in unique and inspiring places. Pianist Filippo Gorini will be the project’s debut artist. This first concert will be live-streamed from the atrium lobby of the monumental Mole Antonelliana in Turin (Italy’s National Museum of Cinema).
