BACH FOR HOUSEHOLD USE In this first collaboration between Bergen Barokk and LAWO Classics, the distinguished Early Music ensemble focuses its attention on the Bach family’s domestic musical activities. The recording “Domestic Bach” offers music that was composed with a view to teaching and entertaining, everything written down in the famous “Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach”, but there are also transcribed versions of, for example, the organ music of father Johan Sebastian himself. Inspired by Bach’s practice, Bergen Barokk has for many years arranged, and at times quite radically rearranged a number of Bach’s works and adapted them to their performance situations.They have both abridged and elaborated on original scores and discovered that there is scarcely a harpsichord piece, an organ trio, cantata, aria or dance from “Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach” that is not waiting to be unravelled in several ways. On this recording they present several selected examples, and the experience of CD listening itself moves into the realm of “Musica Domestica” — music in the home. Bergen Barokk was established in 1994 and is today one of Norway’s leading Early Music ensembles. They have performed in concert and in radio broadcasts in Scandinavia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Russia, and the USA. Their recordings on Simax Classics, BIS, Bergen Digital Studio and Toccata Classics include German, English, French and Italian repertoire. The performers on this recording are — in addition to Frode Thorsen and Hans Knut Sveen, who lead the ensemble — Mona Julsrud, Markku Luolajan-Mikkola and Mikko Perkola. Bergen Barokk receives support from the municipality of Bergen and Arts Council Norway. REVIEWS «Instrumentation in the Baroque era was a flexible proposition, and composers such as Bach would have expected their music to be freely adapted to various ensembles and performing contexts. The Norwegian ensemble Bergen Barokk demonstrates this principle quite convincingly in this varied program of chamber music.» Michael De Sapio – Fanfare Magazine review_LWC1073_Fanfare.pdf
