Bach’s organ works are the starting point for “Bach Inspiriert.” Johann Sebastian Bach was an unparalleled master of the organ. It is said that he played with his feet with as much virtuosity as he did with his hands. It is not surprising, then, that he wrote such inventive and beautiful pieces for the “Queen of Instruments.”
Often, Bach reused his own compositions and those of others, resulting in the creation of magnificent new pieces. Holland Baroque builds upon this tradition with “Bach Inspiriert” where you will hear his organ works transformed into colorful orchestral arrangements. With playfulness, imagination, and creativity, we pay tribute to this masterful organ repertoire. A fugue may sound like an aria, and a chorale fantasy may become a suite. We follow the compositions as a path, always looking to the richness of the grand organ.

Inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s organ works, arranged by Judith and Tineke Steenbrink.
