Comments:Jan Hanford said:

I've been collection orchestrated versions of the Art of Fugue because it's one of my favorite pieces of music, ever. This one, with the orchestration by Fritz Stiedry, is very beautiful. The canons are performed on two pianos; an unusual and creative choice. Very enjoyable and definitely recommended.
