Notes & Reviews:
The Musical Offering BWV 1079, is a collection of contrapuntal pieces by J.S. Bach, based on a single musical theme by Frederick the Great. The particular occasion for this version by Helmut Bornefeld (1906 - 1990) for organ, violin and flute was the imminent dedication of the Schorndorf choir organ in 1975.

Bornefeld's other purpose in making his arrangement for this combination was a practical one: to make it possible to perform the work with very modest forces. The musicians here are excellent and well worth the investment as an interesting alternative.
