Notes & Reviews:

By choosing to record classical repertoire with electric bass, including Bach's Cello Suites, Jacques Bono has acquired a unique position in the music business. Playing them at their Thuringian church "original sites" put Bach's works into high contrast by interpreting them on an instrument of our times, more than 300 years after their composition - a project never ventured before. The time, the separation into musical genres and the familiar listening sensations are all overcome in Jacques Bono's performances. The cellist unperturbedly countered initial doubts by critics who claimed that it was impossible to perform Bach's cello suites on an electric bass with a musical venture that has music lovers of all origins intrigued - a revolutionary act in the best sense of musical tradition. In 2013 Jacques Bono had the idea of recording Bach's 'Inventionen' in two voices together with a female violinist. On the German classical music scene he could not find a female violinist who would venture to play freely with him without fear of offending academically imposed values. He was thus delighted to find Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu in Los Angeles, who proved to be a violinist capable of playing J. B. Bach's music vivaciously, in a heart-felt manner and free of dogma.
