Notes and Editorial Reviews

Johann Sebastian Bach arranged many of his own works, and works by other composers, in order to study them, to learn other compositional styles, and to adapt them for particular performance conditions. In the same spirit, Flautando Köln has now arranged several works by composers from the Bach family for recorder ensemble. The result of this challenging arrangement process is a varied CD full of surprises and the discovery that sometimes, much more is possible than first imagined.
