The participants of the Music Group met on 12 October to discuss the art of fugue.

The example on which the group investigated this most perfect and most complicated form was the work of J.S. Bach. The participants counted the music themes, looked for the counterpoints and talked about the precise principles of the composition. Apart from Bach, they also listened to the pieces composed by others in times different from the times of Bach.
