In March 2016, I heard the pianist Kimiko Ishizaka perform Bach's The Art of Fugue, including the premiere of her own completion, in Cologne (see my review), and she repeated the performance at St John's Smith Square, London in September that year (see my article). I also interviewed Kimiko that year when we talked about her Bach playing (see my interview). Now she is recording Bach's The Art of Fugue with her own completion.

There is a Kickstarter project, to help support the recording project which aims to not only enable the production of a recording (which will be available as a down-load with a very limited edition CD), but to support Kimiko's performances of the work in the Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg and Carnegie Hall, New York, and produce and an Open Score edition of the music.

Rewards range from a copy of the recording download and a PDF of Kimiko's score, to tickets for concerts in Hamburg, New York, and at the Huygens Festival in the Netherlands.

Full details from the Kickstarter.com page.
