Each new performance of Bach fugues requires an arranger to choose instrumentation, due to the minimal information left behind by Bach himself. Most arrangers select a set of instruments, and the ensemble performs the pieces using that palette.
Here the Berlin Akademie Fur Alte Musik take a unique approach by varying the instrumentation and macrostructure to suit the mood and feel of each fugue. Please enjoy the fresh and unique results on the new release below.
