Schnitger’s Dream: Bl!ndman plays Bach
BL!NDMAN, a five-man saxophone ensemble from Brussels, give a spectacular interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s organ repertoire and sound like a human pipe organ.
BL!NDMAN recently released their widely acclaimed CD 32 Foot/The organ of Bach. Erich Sleichim’s performance does full justice to the orchestral sound the organ had in Bach’s era. The tubax and electronics produce the extreme low tones of the old 32-foot organ pipes and combine with the brilliant polyphony of Bach’s compositions to create a unique listening experience.
BL!NDMAN’s founder and artistic director is composer and saxophonist Eric Sleichim. In 1988 Scleichim founded BL!NDMAN, a traditional saxophone quartet that has developed new performance techniques and expanded the instrument’s repertoire by continually exploring the boundaries of other disciplines and early music.
BL!NDMAN plays Bach is a concert in the Schnitger’s Dream series.
