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 program, 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 it's differentiated, historically informed way of playing. Not only a pleasure for organ lovers!
