Igor Markevitch’s astonishingly vivid original works have been released to critical acclaim by Naxos, and this is the final volume in the series. Markevitch outdoes Webern’s famous orchestration of the six-part Ricercare (8557531) by arranging J. S. Bach’s entire Musical Offering for three orchestral groups and solo quartet, and creating a masterful, fully integrated symphonic interpretation which would remain a personal favourite among his many striking productions. ‘A very valuable addition to the series’ (International Record Review on original Marco Polo release).
