In Mozart Studies, it is widely acknowledged that Bach's influence is an important factor for Mozart's artistic development. Yet when discussing how Bach's music affected the development of his compositional styles and techniques, one realizes how tenuous it has been to advance one's arguments without actually seeing in detail how Mozart engaged with Bach's music. This paper examines what Mozart may have thought when he edited Bach's fugues for string quartet by attempting to clarify not only what he did and did not do, but also why he did or did not do something, so as to gain some fresh insight into his Bach experience in 1782. It then outlines a more general background of Bach's fugues in Vienna before they reached the hand of Mozart in order to distinguish what he saw and did to Bach's fugues.
