Phantasm - J.S. Bach: The Well-Tempered Consort – I - Classical CD Choice

Phantasm is a viol ensemble who here provide one of the most unusual realisations of Bach’s keyboard masterpiece. Attention to beauty of sound and balance is paramount, and if other versions with different orchestration find more colour in the piece, it is still a very persuasive account – although perhaps not one to be listened to in toto without a degree of aural fatigue.
