Phantasm - J.S. Bach: The Well-Tempered Consort – 1 & II - Schwarzwälder Bote

With a similar flair, the ensemble Phantasm embarks on two albums under the title 'The Well-Tempered Consort’ which explores the contrapuntal subtleties of the Well-Tempered Clavier. This string quintet, which has been based in Berlin for a few years, succeeds in bringing Bach's keyboard music to life with an elegant poise, thus honouring the composer Robert Schumann's challenge to give each of these "truly poetic creations" its "own expression”
