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.
“Eleonor Bindman’s arrangement is outstanding…Bindman and Jenny Lin really lean in to this freedom, swinging when Bach allows, and never staid or boring when things get more thoughtful or academic. … Though she may have started with purely pedagogical reasons for bringing this music to four hands and a piano keyboard… Bindman and Lin are obviously having too much fun here for it to be just that. And that makes it even more pleasurable for us to listen to.”
