About the album

The tradition of adapting other composers’ works has been the convention in the early eighteenth century. Adopting a piece by another composer was always regarded as a sign of highest esteem for fellow composers.

As he grew older Bach practised this more and more frequently for his own works. He arranged concertos written in Köthen for other ensembles in Leipzig. He adapted Weimar cantatas to suit Leipzig conditions and transformed chamber music into orchestral music and vice versa. The diversity of Bach’s adaptations of his own works knew no limits.

This CD by the Elbipolis Baroque Orchestra of Hamburg is aligned to the tradition of Bach adaptations. Five works by Johann Sebastian Bach have been recorded in orchestral arrangements specially created by Jörg Jacobi, and also the presumed original version of the Overture in B Minor (BWV 1067) in a reconstruction by Werner Breig.

Meesterwerken van Johann Sebastian Bach bewerkt voor orkest
In de vroege 18e eeuw was het de gewoonte om werken van andere componisten aan te passen. Hiermee werd de waardering voor deze componisten aangetoond. Johann Sebastian Bach was een van de componisten die werken van anderen had bewerkt. Hij maakte bewerkingen voor orgel en klavecimbel van concerten van onder andere Giuseppe Torelli, Antonio Vivaldi en Alessandro Marcello.

Daarnaast paste Bach naarmate hij ouder werd zijn eigen werken aan. De diversiteit van zijn bewerkingen kende geen grenzen. Na de dood van de Bach werden veel componiste creatief beïnvloed door de bewerkingen. Onder hen waren Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Ferruccio Busoni en Arnold Schönberg. Zij gebruikten de composities van Bach als basis voor hun eigen bewerkingen.

Elbipolis Barockorchester laat op dit album een nieuw perspectief op bekende werken van Bach horen. Het album is verbonden met de traditie van Bach-bewerkingen. Het bevat vijf orkestrale bewerkingen van werken van Bach, gemaakt door Jörg Jacobi volgens 18e-eeuwse gewoonten. Daarnaast bevat het een bewerking van de vermoedelijk originele versie van de Ouverture in B klein, geschreven door Werner Breig.
Anfang des 18. Jahrhunderts war es gang und gäbe fremde Kompositionen zu bearbeiten und für eigene Werke zu arrangieren. Die Übernahme eines Stückes galt stets als ein Zeichen höchster Anerkennung für den anderen Komponisten. In diese Tradition reihte sich Johann Sebastian Bach immer wieder ein. Er übertrug diese Praxis auch auf eigene Werke und arrangierte zahlreiche seiner Werke für spezielle Anlässe.

In der Tradition der Bach- Bearbeitungen steht auch die hier vorliegende CD des Elbipolis Barockorchesters Hamburg. Eingespielt wurden fünf Werke von Johann Sebastian Bach in eigens angefertigten Orchester- Arrangements von Jörg Jacobi sowie die vermutete Originalfassung der Ouverture h-Moll (BWV 1067) in einer Rekonstruktion von Werner Breig. Bachs Ouverture F-Dur für Cembalo (BWV 820) ist im sogenannten Andreas-Bach-Buch überliefert.
Sei capolavori di Johann Sebastian Bach arrangiati e ricostruiti secondo la prassi settecentesca.

Bach, transcribed, sensed and danced
Pizzicato, 01-2-2014

Bach is known for having transcribed a lot of own works and those of other composers. This CD by the Elbipolis Baroque Orchestra of Hamburg is aligned to the tradition of Bach adaptations. Five works by Johann Sebastian Bach have been recorded in orchestral arrangements specially created by Jörg Jacobi, and also the presumed original version of the Overture in B Minor (BWV 1067) in a reconstruction by Werner Breig. The resulting program is not only interesting but musically appealing. Elbipolis focuses not only on virtuosity but plays with great feeling. And since the music dances like Bach always should do, we can only but recommend this SACD.

The playing is excellent and the recording brilliantly clear.
