This is one of my most favorite moments in the Bach St. Matthew Passion … something about that first entrance by the chorus just shocks me every time.

So ist mein Jesus nun gefangen

From the YouTube page (with some translation issues**, as his first name is actually Vyatkin and I don’t know what “A body Sidelnikov” means but I’m betting someone out there can help me!):
I.S.Bah- “Adagio” from the Easter Oratorio
In Vyatkin oboe.

I was listening to our local classical music station and they played an arrangement of Bach’s Goldberg Variations for oboe, English horn, Violin and cello by the Aulos Quartet. Unfortunately I can’t find that to share, but instead I share this wind arrangement.

J.S.Bach: Goldberg Variations, arr. for oboe, clarinet, basset horn and bassoon

First performance of a new arrangement of Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
Performers:
Trio Arundo: Jan Sou?ek – oboe, Jan Mach – clarinet, Václav Vonášek – bassoon

… I don’t know their ages, but these younger musicians do quite a fine job!

Symphony Orchestra of the Stanis?aw Moniuszko Music School in Bielsko-Bia?a, Poland
Alicja Matuszczyk – oboe,
Julia Iskrzycka – violin,
Andrzej Kucyba?a – conductor,

When I was younger I simply couldn’t stand the sound of Baroque instruments. It puzzles me now, as I really love them. I wonder if it’s just that I was so busy trying to refine my (modern) sound I couldn’t deal with other sounds. That might be it, since I was also SO harsh about any sort of tone other than the American sound.

These days I just love it all, as long as it’s musical and in tune. Variety … it’s not a bad thing.

This video was a fun listen. The d’amore player is Emmanuel Laporte, in case you are wondering. The group might be the Ricercar Consort, since I do see Philippe Pierlot playing.

If life were longer and time weren’t an issue I would so love to learn Baroque oboe … or maybe the Baroque d’amore, as it is quite lovely!

You’ll hear some speedy tempi here …

I’ve not posted unusual Bach interpretations for a while now. It’s probably time …?
