Handel did it, as did Mozart, Berlioz, even Busoni, as well as most composers in music history and even Johann Sebastian Bach: they all parodied the works of their ancestors and contemporaries. Moreover, Bach was a great master in using his own works for new purposes.

For this CD programme, the Capricornus Consort Basel has adapted organ works by Johann Sebastian Bach for string ensemble, which has a special appeal: on the one hand, the organ sound is transformed into an (extremely homogeneous) string sound. In addition, the Capricornus Consort creates completely new listening impressions of the well-known organ works through its differentiated, historically informed way of playing. Not only a pleasure for organ lovers!
