Ernest Bloch

July 24, 1880 - July 15, 1959
born in Geneva, Switzerland, composed during the Modern period
Swiss-born American composer Ernest Bloch (1880-1959) established his reputation in music on Hebraic themes in works such as the cello concerto Schelomo (1916). That year, Bloch first traveled to the United States, became a U.S. citizen, and ultimately composed his prize-winning cantata, America: An Epic Rhapsody (1926). Bloch's return to Switzerland was interrupted by the rise of Nazism, and he permanently settled in the U.S. in 1938. Bloch was an important teacher and composed numerous operas, symphonies, concertos, and chamber music, though his works exploring Hebrew concepts, such as Baal Shem (1923) and Suite hébraïque (1951), remain the most popular. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

And here's the cool thing about that fugue: It's also powerful.
Yehudi Menuhin once wrote about visiting Bloch at home and finding him writing out exercises in counterpoint like any third-year conservatory student, and went on to mention that ''the fruits of those studies were evident in the Concerto Grosso No. 1.'' In fact, the fugue from that piece is a virtual model of 20th century contrapuntal technique and uses virtually every fugal device you can name (stretto, augmentation , diminution, inverted and retrograde subject entrances, etc.).
