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.
