Notes and Editorial Reviews

Musical scholars have long considered latter versions as being more representative of the composer’s mature thoughts on a given composition. Studying the patterns of transmission of the instrumental works of J.S. Bach though makes us want to reconsider this concept in light of what we can observe of the composer’s creative recycling of his own works. On this album, the oboist John Abberger and Four Centuries of Bach present two of Bach’s Orchestral Suites in their original instrumentation. The recording is completed by two choral preludes, in a purely instrumental arrangement which allows some of these very personal musical statements to be experienced in a different light.
