Work introduction

This string trio is Krenek’s homage to J. S. Bach on the 200th anniversary of his death. The complete Latin title also refers to the composer’s method in writing the music; he used the twelve-tone technique to express his reverence. A quote from The Art of Fugue identifies the homage directly; scholars will also detect invocations of the name Bach; the second part of the row’s basic configuration consists of the pitches B (B-flat), A, C and H (B natural).
