Tanya Gabrielian was a student at the Royal Academy of Music when an injury landed her in the hospital for a month. Listening to Bach during that painful time was transformative for her as musician. In this album, she rebuilds suites by J.S. Bach using transcriptions by a colorful assortment of composers.
Usually each musician featured on a CD plays only one instrument. With the Renaissance band Piffaro, that is not the case: each musician plays as many as seven instruments throughout this joyful new album of music that predates that of Bach and his contemporaries.
