Accademia Bizantina was founded in Ravenna, Italy, in 1983 with the intention of “making music like a large quartet”.  Then as now, the group is managed autonomously by its members, guaranteeing the chamber music approach to their performances which has been their distinguishing feature. On its latest recording, the ensemble presents The Art of Fugue, Johann Sebastian Bach’s last composition. Left incomplete in 1750, it is the composer’s final statement on the art of contrapuntal writing.
