Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

All of the works on this release are arrangements - and in a twofold sense. First, the versions by Bach are arrangements of his own works and the result of what in part was a long history of composition during the course of which the pieces were repeatedly transferred to other forms. Second, this CD presents Bach's compositions in a performance form representing the Camerata Koeln's own arrangement of Bach's versions.

"...It is gratifying to me to listen to this music late in the evening through a quality headphone rig. It seems to be "pure music," with little reference to Bach's religious music. As the trio sonatas are more varied than the flute sonatas, some people might like it more. I, Oblomov, can't decide which I like better. Undecided, which is my fate, I'll cop out and say, "They're each terrific. Order them both!" -Fanfare
