Programme:
»Saitensprünge«: selected organ works by Johann Sebastian Bach on gut strings

Johann Sebastian Bach was a grand master at adapting his own works for new purposes. Entirely in this spirit, the Capricornus Consort Basel has made arrangements for strings of Bach's organ works - trio sonatas, fantasies, preludes and fugues - without removing or adding a note. Thanks to their beautifully transparent sound, these alternative versions are on a par with the original, while at the same time presenting Bach’s organ works in a completely new light – a true revelation, and not just for the organ enthusiast!
