J.S. BACH PARTITAS...on Saxophone!

August 27th, 2014

Mastering the new Turtle Records album with Raaf Hekkema. Bach's violin partitas in an arrangement for saxophone by Raaf Hekkema. The authority of these pieces is coming across so clearly in this "modern" version. Raaf's fantastic ability to implement period playing practices on both the soprano- 7 alto saxophone is mesmerizing.

The release is accompanied by the publishing of Hekkema's arrangements by Schott...anybody dare to try playing this as well!?
