This intriguing work introduces the notes B A C H in the last movement. Sadly, this recording in 2007 brought the work of this legendary ensemble to a close. The recording was made in a light, modern building and Bach’s timeless music enters into a two-way dialogue with a fascinating light and shadow effect by day and night. Every movement has an optically individual image.

*****

“you might think...that a performance of Bach's work would not make for the best viewing on video. Yet being able to see a performance can heighten the musical experience - as here, where the players' gestures often clarify the music's structure and texture...In turn, sheer contrapuntal wizardry begins to spill over from cerebral into emotional appreciation.”
