Lukas Foss conducting The Sheffield Ensemble of 40 string, woodwind and percussion players.
Featuring a special guest appearance by the California Boys Choir.
"Malloch`s version stimulates, excites, outrages, tantalizes, and finally blows away the prejudices which have kept the work under glass for more than 200 years!"
-San Francisco Chronicle
"An extraordinary release...the most remarkable Die Kunst Der Fuge ever recorded...do not deny yourself this joyous musical celebration!"
-American Record Guide
"Malloch`s orchestration is a brilliant identification with the essence of Bach`s art - transformed with wit, charm, and grace. He makes inspired use of the Sheffield Ensemble, with the most ingenious orchestration...the chosen tempi are magical. Recorded live to analog two-track, using minimalist microphone techniques and esoteric tube preamps to provide remarkable warmth and depth...this is priceless!"
-H & B Review
