Naxos Records, a leading label and distributor of Classical Music, announces a March 2018 “Brandenburg Duets” release on their Grand Piano label. Launched in 2012, Grand Piano has quickly gained a reputation for producing high quality recordings of rare keyboard gems and the new arrangement of the Brandenburg Concertos was a perfect fit for its repertoire of world premiere recordings. The album will be distributed globally both physically and digitally through the Naxos distribution network, and since it is a release from a “house” label, it will be given priority by their sales organizations.
Bindman takes [Bach] quite literally, transcribing in the register he wrote in, mostly, and clearly with enjoyment. Her tempos are sometimes faster than a cellist’s fingers might find practical, but her musical sense is excellent. She observes most of the written repeats.
