You may recall that one of my goals for “My Year of Bach” is simply to enjoy myself. On that note (pun intended!), I cannot help but share a unique performance of the Badinerie from Bach’s Suite No. 2 in B minor. Read more about the four orchestral suites or ouvertures here.
The original instrumentation, of course, is for solo transverse flute and strings. As you’ll see, these guys, Ariel Zuckermann and Eyal Ein-Habar have altered Bach’s instrumentation slightly.
Surely, Bach would approve. After all, Badinerie is French for “jesting.” Enjoy this unique rendition here!
