Maestro Classics wins its 13th Parents' Choice Award for "Bach and the Pipe Organ"

Updated: Apr 24, 2020

Read the Parents' Choice Award-winning product review:

"Another entry in the sleekly produced Maestro Classics “Stories in Music” series, this album about the life of Johann Sebastian Bach, written by series co-creator Bonnie Ward Simon, features expressive narration performed by Yadu (aka Dr. Konrad Czynski). It is accompanied by excerpts of works by the great composer (who in his lifetime was best known for his towering talent as an organist and harpsichordist), performed by noted organist David Enlow and harpsichordist/clavichordist Dongsok Shin of the baroque ensemble, REBEL. Simon presents spoken interludes about the fascinating history and construction of the pipe organ (“the king of instruments”) and additional facts about Bach’s life, and there is an unexpected treat: the Swingle Singers, the group that rose to fame in the early 1960s, is featured in its signature jazz a capella version of Bach’s Fugue in G Minor. The album ends with Enlow’s solo organ performance of the Fugue and includes a 24-page booklet with activities, puzzles, and facts about Bach, about pipe organs, harpsichords and clavichords, and about the baroque period."
