BACH – Musical Offering

Arion ensemble
1995, FL2 3065

Written by JS Bach in 1747,  towards the end of his life, this music was said by musicologist Carl de Nys to “to sum up all of western music”.

If you are new to this music, listen to this recording. If you are familiar with this music you will enjoy Arion´s excellent presentation.
Whichever, it repays repeated listening.

…A recording of very high level, as good as all Arion’s previous productions. Here, we find Arion as we like them: subtle.    - Francois Tousignant, Le Devoir, Canada
