Art is a journey into the most unknown thing of all - oneself. Nobody knows his own frontiers… I don’t think I’d ever want to take a road if I knew where it led.

Bach Connections

"bachconnections" by Jonathan Freeman-Attwood and Colm Carey

'Bach Connections' celebrates the kaleidoscopic art of Johann Sebastian Bach in an invigorating recital of concerto movements, chorale preludes and fantasias. Framed by two exceptionally ebullient concerto allegros, the programme neatly juxtaposes Bach's mentor Buxtehude with a distinguished 19th-century performer-composer (Karg-Elert), alongside a famous re-working of a Venetian work (Marcello) and a supremely lyrical essay by a highly-regarded student of Bach's (Krebs). The modern transcriber-performer finds his own peculiar connection with J.S. Bach in original new repertoire for the thrilling combination of organ and trumpet. In the words of Gramophone, 'the present disc can hardly be bettered'.
