Includes a scrolling score to follow along, and some captions explaining the composition.

Harpsichord solo and organ solo performances of Johann Sebastian Bach's Modulation Canon, from the Musical Offering. Bradley Lehman, March 13-14, 2005.

Each time the piece repeats, it has changed key so it is a step higher in pitch.... The unequal tuning also helps it to sound increasingly intense during this process.

The full-length CD "Playing from Bach's Fancy" is available at http://www.larips.com , along with further information about this tuning method.

December 2007 this written-out performance score of the piece is also available on the web. It is near the bottom of the CD's advertisement page, here:

This is a re-edited and extended version of the first video that is here:

(harpsichord performance only, there, and no score)
