Item Number: NX.RAM1911
In earlier times, adaptations and rearrangements of their own works or those of others formed an integral part of the daily lives of musicians and composers. So-called 'historically informed' performance practice, which has developed out of a strictly historical perspective on past eras of music, long left this way of treating an existing composition almost totally unexplored. Today, however, it is enjoying a renaissance and is part of a musician's training. The idea of arranging Bach's works is a natural one, since the composer himself was an inveterate transcriber. Most of the programme recorded here consists of solo keyboard works rescored for a chamber formation - in other words, the performers have chosen an approach that is the contrary of Bach's usual practice. A fascination for the timbral possibilities of the viola da gamba trio and a shared passion for Bach's music prompted the Cellini Consort to create this original and personal programme.
