‘Musical offering’ reviewed on Record Review
Andrew McGregor reviewed our CD ‘Musical offering’ for BBC Radio 3’s Record Review:
The Bach Players … using the Musical offering as the centrepiece of their latest contextual exploration of the music of Bach, alternating trio sonata textures with solo harpsichord, and prefacing Bach’s music with a wonderful D minor sonata by Bach’s idol, Buxtehude, which shows where Bach might have learned some of his ideas of musical rhetoric. The Bach Players’ Musical offering is new from Hyphen Press Music – excellent notes as well, reminding us that there are all kinds of combinations of instruments on which Bach’s fugal exercises might have been performed.
