A Bach Notebook - Jonathan Freeman-Attwood - Northamptonshire Telegraph

Linn's latest absorbing CD finds musician, academic and all-round Renaissance Man Jonathan Freeman-Attwood applying his vibrant techinque to works penned by 11 members of the unusually gifted Bach family, including of course the great Johann Sebastian himself.

The innovative trumpeter joins forces with pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar to tackle the latter's stylish arrangements of compositions whch were originally written for instruments as diverse as the cello, organ and human voice, creating a unique and deeply unhistorical recital which is most unlikely to find favour with musical purists, although it's well worth investigating nonetheless.
