Fugue in D Minor BWV 565
Bach produced a huge volume of classical instrumental music for the most advanced musical instruments of his day and now we have produced some new arrangements in MP3 format. In the seventies Wendy Carlos used Moog synthesizers to produce albums of re-interpretations of some of this music. Here we are offering a fresh approach based on combinations of some of the latest synthesizer instruments to bring fresh colours to the music and highlight the dazzling counterpoint. For this initial collection Bach MP3 Fugues we have combined Mega Moog Synthesizers with Steel Drums which heighten the drama and emphasize the sunnier side of his work. For the Toccatas and Brandenburg Concertos on the other hand we have used combinations of Marimba and Steel Drums to create a really cool sound.
Toccata were originally composed for the Harpsichord and so it is less surprising that they respond well to a percussion treatment. They are early works where the composer was able to give free reign to his musical imagination and virtuosity.
