Art of Fugue:
Fuga a 3 Soggetti
(Contrapunctus 14)

The timeline represents that portion of Contrapunctus XIV that we know to have been written by Bach. Zoltán Göncz has provided a convincing realization of the fugue's conclusion based upon his observation that each exposition can be combined in counterpoint with the prior. This allows him to predict a fourth exposition that incorporates the original subject of the Art of Fugue in combination with the prior three subjects of Contrapunctus XIV. You can follow Göncz's logic on YouTube |Part 1|Part2|
