The video you see above describes the making of saxophonist Dave Camwell‘s CD — Bach-centric — a collection of beloved works by Johann Sebastian Bach, arranged for saxophone, which came out on the Teal Creek label last month and is available on CD Baby. You can read my original post containing all the details about this release.
The CD is currently being played on the Beethoven Satellite Network, a nationally-syndicated program (through the WFMT Fine Arts Network) of which Peter Van De Graaff is program director and host. The network is carried throughout the country to approximately 150 stations (mostly NPR affiliates).
The praise is starting to roll in about this extraordinary CD:
“I’ve discovered another masterpiece Bach CD recorded, and performed, all by saxophones.” – David J. Gibson, Saxophone Journal
“While doing research for my new documentary BACH & more friends, I came across the Bach-Centric CD. I fell in love with it immediately and knew Dave Camwell had to be a part of my new film. Dave’s playing and the ensemble work of the Oasis group is Bach performed at its highest level.” - Michael R. Lawrence, Director of BACH & friends
Here’s a video featuring a montage of images and audio samples from this recording:
