About this release

Bach on a saxophone? What next? Of course J.S. Bach’s music is indestructible. But some arrangements turn out far better than others and manage to do justice to the original. The transition of music for a string instrument to wind does not seem obvious, especially when a saxophone is part of the equation, but Henk van Twillert pulls it off. The baritone saxophone proves itself to be an ideal replacement of the cello. It is not only a similarity in timbre but when played by this most skilful and imaginative Dutch saxophonist the instrument becomes totally adaptable to baroque music.

So should Bach be played on a saxophone? Listen to this release and you will know the answer. It may vary from ‘why not’ to ‘definitely’!
