Album in MP3 cart View MP3 Cart. I agree with the effusive praise others have given to this rendition of Art of the Fugue and A Musical Offering. It is well worth owning this CD and listening to it over and over to allow yourself to more deeply appreciate Bach's divine composition rendered here so well by Munchinger and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. You listen to the first 11 fugues in rich string orchestra then the instrumentation abruptly changes in the four canons, the 13th fugue, and then changes yet again with the last two tracks of just harpsichords. Then on CD-2 they go back to the string ensemble to finish fugue 12 and the final unfinished fugue 14.

The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra (Stuttgarter Kammerorchester) is a German chamber orchestra based in Stuttgart. Its principal concert venue is the Liederhalle, Stuttgart. Karl Münchinger founded the orchestra in 1945, and served as its chief conductor until 1987. With Münchinger, the orchestra made its USA debut in March 1954, in New York City. Martin Sieghart was the orchestras second chief conductor, from 1990 to 1995.

After Karl Münchinger's retirement, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra worked with guest conductors such as Trevor Pinnock, Frans Brüggen and Vaclav Neumann and with soloists such as Frank Peter Zimmermann, Janos Starker, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, Christian Zacharias, and Jan Garbarek. The orchestra has also played regularly for Helmuth Rilling, the artistic director of the International Bach Academy Stuttgart and of the Gächinger Kantorei
