Such was Sergei Rachmaninoff's admiration for Bach's Violin Partita in E Major, BWV 1006, that he arranged three of its seven movements — Prelude, Gavotte and Gigue — for solo piano. Bachmaninoff, if you'll pardon the pun.
That arrangement served as the point of departure for accordionist Michael Bridge and clarinettist Kornel Wolak (together, they're Double-Double Duo) who transcribed and performed it for CBC Music at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto.
Watch and be amazed:
Duos to Nonets, Boccherini and Beethoven to Ravel and Brahms....all performed by the great collaborators of our time. The rich and intimate world of classical music for small ensembles. Hear: Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonin Dvorak, Maurice Ravel and more!
