Notes and Editorial Reviews

Many scholarly questions still surround Bachs late work, the Musicalische Opfer (Musical Offering), but about the music's staggering brilliance there is no question. On this CD, the ensemble Il Gardellino combines this ornate contrapuntal masterpiece with the similarly late and intricate Einige canonische Veranderung uber das Weynacht-Lied, BWV 769, in many ways a perfect compliment to the Musicalische Opfer, for which they've created this chamber music version especially for this recording. - Naxos Many scholarly questions still surround Bachs late work, the Musicalische Opfer (Musical Offering), but about the music's staggering brilliance there is no question.
