Johann Sebastian Bach: The Well-tempered Consort I CD / Album

CD / Album

Description

In this recording Phantasm make no excuses for arranging some of Bach's remarkable keyboard music for a consort of viols. Led by director Laurence Dreyfus they go on a conscious mission to uncover the hidden riches concealed behind the more neutral resources of the harpsichord and organ so as to liberate the fascinating characters lurking in the shadows and behind the scenes within Bach's individual polyphonic lines. In the process of fugal confrontation among three to six musicians, they come face to face with the astounding psychological insights of Bach's most radical inventions. Drawn chiefly from the two books of the 'Well-Tempered Clavier', the 'Musical Offering' and the 'Clavier-Übung III', the repertoire chosen for this recording has an uncanny way of forging Bach's links with the old English traditions of the 'Fantasy' and 'In nomine' as much as leaping forward into a chromatic twelve-tone world where the raw emotions of expressionist modernism become not only audible but adventurously relevant.
