A dialogue between the gritty fugues of Shostakovich, and the formidable work of his inspiration, J.S. Bach – re-conceived for brass quintet. Includes a selection from Bach’s Well Tempered Klavier and Shostakovich’s equivalent opus 87, as well as the dazzling BWV 541 ‘Great’ G major BWV 903.
“some of the most thrilling playing of its kind”
