Description

The performance The present recording, in the matters of instrumentation and order of mo- vements, is based on a concert performance. It derives from numerous prac- tical sources of inspiration, with clarity of articulation and voice leading be- ing of primary importance. Authenticity in the strictest sense has not been attempted. This would have involved a keyboard instrument. This is also the reason that we have only recorded two of the four canons. The two others, for us, are not realistically performable on our instruments. One might ask whether a sound recording on CD is perhaps even more appropriate to this work than a concert performance. It offers the listener the option of selec- ting separate fugues, the possibility of programming one’s own order of performance; in this way it could be seen as somewhat related to a practical use of the edition which Bach’s original admirers had in their possession. The printed version differs in from the manuscript in various matters of order and notation. However, Bach was certainly involved in the printing of the work, and the changes relative to the manuscript must be considered as originating with him. ……

Press reviews

Klassieke Zaken

(…) Het kwartet is er volledig in geslaagd ook interpretatief er triomferend uit te komen (…) (..) Er is geen ander ensemble dat met zoveel integriteit, inzet en kwaliteit een bewerking van Die Kunst heeft vastgelegd. (…) (…) een prachtig document. Luister (…) een van de zeldzame opnamen die na beluistering diepe sporen in de ziel achterlaten (…) (…) vier koorddansers die met schijnbare vanzelfsprekendheid Bachs choreografie tot leven brengen. (…)

Tijdschrift Oude Muziek

(…) er is geen blokfluitensemble dat dit niveau in de verste verte ook maar benadert (…) (…) Wonderboys (…) (…) Bach op zijn best.

Fanfare

(…) These men play the recorders with ravishing delicacy and skill, and the four lines remain clearly differentiated, which is crucial to a succesfull performance (…)

Leeuwarder Courant

(…) met veel liefde, muzikaliteit en inzet (…)

Het Parool

(…) perfecte introductie in de ultime contrapunt stijl van de grote meester (…)
