The organ trio sonatas of J.S. Bach are intimate, thrilling, sublime, touching, and uplifting. While they are brilliantly polyphonic, they are ultimately conceived for just a single player to perform on the organ. The recorder is capable of expressive subtleties of articulation and shaping tones that an organ is not, but a lone recorder player cannot hope to cover all three parts at once--or can she? In this multi-tracked video project, Emily O’Brien plays her own transcriptions of Bach’s amazing works using seven recorders ranging from soprano down to the sonorous contrabass.
