Instruments Bach never heard (2): The marimbamain
We weren’t that thrilled last week with Yo Yo Ma’s release, in which the cellist plays with mandolinist Chris Thile on bits of Bach for the dinner-party circuit.
This, however, is different.
Amir Lavie, principal percussionist of the Israel Symphony Orchestra, thinks the Fugue from the Violin Sonata in G minor by J.S. Bach sounds better on Marimba.
See what you think.
The filiming is the work of ISO co-principal flute, Yoel Culliner.
