Fenyő László - violoncello, Farkas Gábor - piano (2005, Budapest)

Choral prelude to this choral from St. John Passion:

Christ, who makes us blessed,
committed no evil deed,
for us He was taken in the night
like a thief,
led before godless people
and falsely accused,
scorned, shamed, and spat upon,
as the Scripture says.

W.A. Mozart (1756-1791): Fuga in C minor, KV. 546 (Vienna, 26 June 1788)

Liszt Ferenc Chamber Orchestra, Rolla János (2004)

The fugue is a transcription of his Fugue in C minor for two pianos, K. 426, which he wrote in December 1783. The fugue style of the piece reflects Bach’s influence on Mozart. Mozart was introduced to the music of Bach and Handel in 1782 by his patron Gottfried van Swieten. Mozart had previously transcribed some of Bach’s fugues for string quartet.(via Wikipedia)
