When the great, now late Canadian composer John Burke heard Antonio Vivaldi’s fugue in e minor (from Sinfonia in e minor for strings and continuo, RV 134), he immediately knew it would be a perfect complement to Ensemble Vivant’s fugue recording. Cleverly coining it ‘iFUGUE’, John gifted his brilliant arrangement of this fugue to Ensemble Vivant. iFUGUE fittingly leads off Ensemble Vivant’s album iFUGUE, A World of Fugues.
