Composer Lowell Liebermann was haunted for years by a J.S. Bach fugue that spun around and around in his head. Then he was asked to write a new piece for a concert that just happened to fall on Bach's birthday. On this episode of Performance Today, we'll hear Liebermann's twist on Bach's fugue, from a concert in Colorado Springs.
