Notes & Reviews:

Founded by Kristjan Järvi in 1993, the Absolute Ensemble is a group of outstanding musicians that break the musical boundaries between different genres and cultures. On Bach Re-Invented, the Ensemble uses the famous Bach two-part inventions for keyboard to explore its impact on many musical genres from jazz and rock to pop and folk. Guitarist Gene Pritsker and sax player Daniel Schnyder developed these short pieces into concerto movements where rock, gypsy folk music, Indian rhythms, African beats and electronica meet Bach's Baroque counterpoint. Also included are Bach's original inventions nos. 1, 4 and 8 played by acclaimed pianist, and leading Bach interpreter, Simone Dinnerstein.The three Bach originals are placed in between the alternative and contemporary versions creating an exciting journey through time. Says Järvi, "We all believe in the universality of music, in its timelessness and freedom from boundaries. Each of us wants to shake off the fetters that have come to bind us over the decades or centuries. Bach never paid any heed to convention; inspiration alone was his guide."
