Wright, Craig, MUSI 112 Listening to Music, Fall 2008. Yale Open Course Ware: Music, Accessed 6/10/14, http://oyc.yale.edu/music/musi-112/lecture-13 License: Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 In this lecture, Professor Wright briefly explores the manifestations of the fugue form in poetry, painting, and other disciplines, and then gives a detailed explanation of how fugues are put together in music. Though he uses excerpts by composers as disparate as Georges Bizet and Leonard Bernstein to illustrate his points, he draws his main musical examples from J.S. Bach.
