Notes & Reviews:

Written as a series of companion pieces to each of Bach's celebrated Brandenburg concerti, Axelrod's Six Fantasias were first and foremost an engaging compositional challenge. The very specific combinations of instruments stretched Axelrod's imagination for sound possibilities. They also ended up providing an interesting and surprising addition to his compositional output for chamber orchestra and ensembles.
