The Aston Magna Music Festival, that's been enriching our great state of Massachusetts for the last month (and for the better part of the last half-century), has inspired, delighted, and nourished our wonderful Groupmuse community by bringing us along to a number of their performances for a Groupmuse Night Out series. Well, they've got one final performance left and they've invited us to their grand finale.

And a fitting finale it'll be -- the entirety of the program will comprise of J.S. Bach's The Art of Fugue. Bach's very own grand finale, The Art of the Fugue was the last piece he ever wrote and is often regarded as among the most profound works of music ever conceived. It's 19 different explorations of a single musical idea, revealing the depth and possibility of even the simplest subjects -- a revelation that pertains not just to music but to all things.

Bach never finished the work and perhaps because of that, he never specified its instrumentation, so it's been performed with everything from an organ to a brass ensemble. This Thursday Night in Waltham's Slosberg Hall, it'll take a shape that it has never before been known, with a new orchestration by Daniel Stepner, the artistic director of Aston Magna, featuring the flute, the violin, the harpsichord, the viola da gamba, the viola, the oboe, and the cello.

It'll be a feast of sound for the ages and we so grateful we're able to share it with you. And thanks once again to our marvelous friends at the Aston Magna Music Festival for taking us along.

Our limited stack of tickets is $20 -- fully half off the list price, and the concert is this Thursday so hustle if you want to join!

And have a great Night Out!
