The music of Johann Sebastian Bach is timeless, and often said to be “indestructible”. Regardless of this, arranging or making changes in works that are beloved and so often played around the world is not something a musician takes lightly. Since both of us have roots in Swedish folk music, we approach Bach from a folk musician’s point of view, which allows us to take certain liberties and imbue this repertoire with our own brand of musicality. We have also chosen to add some folk music to Bach’s works – both because the combination has merit in itself, and because it is music we love to play. The tracks on this CD are a selection from the treasure trove of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music along with our own arrangements of folk music favorites. Inspiration from nature colors the pieces, the outdoor summer festivals and jams, and simply growing up with the improv that is folk music. The result is a meeting of two worlds, J.S Bach and folk music, where our listeners join us on a vibrant and whirling journey from the Baroque era to our own. We hope it invites you to get up and dance, which is why we’ve called this album “Dancing with Bach” –a title that is simultaneously humorous and serious. This growth potential of a project like this is exciting and it’s taken us down a path we hope to continue!
