Organized by Merwin Siu of the Toledo Symphony, this string quartet performance of Bach’s Art of the Fugue is inspired by a 2017 addition to the TMA permanent collection, Judit Reigel’s 1982 painting, also called Art of the Fugue (Art de la Fugue). Reigl views the painter’s body as a mechanism to translate vibrations and movement into a physical representation onto the canvas while listening to Bach and Mozart on the radio station French Musique.  The ensemble features Merwin Siu and Cheryl Trace on violin, Kalindi Bellach on viola, and Renee Goubeaux on cello.
