I whole heartedly agree with this. At Penn State many of the brass and woodwind majors play very odd transcriptions of Bach and Mozart for like saxaphone...Originally posted by daniel@Jul 23 2004, 03:49 PM
I think, these modern instrumentations are quite interesting, but i do not listen to them much. Classical stuff with modern instrumentation, there I am a bit conservative, I do not like it often, hurts me when I listen to .
I once heard one of Bach's cello suites on trombone... quite weird if you ask me. And no, I didn't particulary like it...
But, I do think it is good to allow modern instruments to play the classics.
I guess I'm sitting on the fence for this one...
