THE SWINGLE SINGERS : PRELUDE AND FUGUE No 10 in E minor [JAZZ SEBASTIAN BACH Le Volume 2, 1968]

Johann Sebastian Βach από την πρώτη, γαλλική βερσιόν του φωνητικού γκρουπ του Ward Swingle. Σύμφωνα με τους καθαρολόγους, επρόκειτο για ιεροσυλία. Κάποιοι μίλησαν για “τολμηρούς πειραματισμούς”. Για άλλους πάλι, ήταν “απλώς” διασκέδαση αξιώσεων. Συμφωνώ με τους τελευταίους, επαυξάνοντας:…και εξακολουθεί να είναι.

Johann Sebastian Bach from the first, French version of Ward Swingle‘s vocal group. According to purists, it was sacrilege. Some talked about “bold experimentation.” For others it was “just” high-end entertainment. I agree with the later, adding: …and still is.

      I’m sure Bach himself would enjoy it. These guys are so elegant and detailed. Thank you very much and sorry for the delay!
