here is a little demo of "con sordino violins" using Dimension violins 2, Muted Chamber violins and muted solo violin.
Many thanks to J.S.Bach for this incredible music ... Enjoy !

This is truly a wonderful piece of music, pretty unknown. And as William stated, the syncopation is a little surprising for the baroque period. But it is very effective. As usual, you managed to create a very beatiful orchestral sound in a clear and transparent ambience. The substitution for the voice is a bit strange at first, but so beautiful. The combination Bach/Baylac is again a top hit! Nice use of the Dimensions!
Thanks WIlliam, Max and Jean for your kind comments.
The choice of english horn to replace the the alto may be surprising, but it is not the first time i use it to replace a voice :
There is on youtube a very nice version of this aria, funny video, with the very good Musica Florea Ensemble and Magdalena KOZENA :
I had seen that 'funny' video before. I am particularly fond of the interpretation of the music and of the superb voice. Dramatic however was at that time that talented female singers didn't have access to that miraculous world of 'official' music. The harsh look and expression on Bach's face speek for themselves, but his musical genious surpassed the aversion for women in musical practice (in the film anyway). In that perspective, that funny movie is some kind of denunciation of female discrimination. That makes it a little less funny...
