Baroque Remixed @ The Roundhouse

BBC Radio 3’s ‘Baroque Remixed’ night at The Roundhouse featured a specially commissioned collaboration between the BBC Concert Orchestra, Charles Hazlewood and the vintage synths of Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory.

A Moog, Korg Monopoly and a Roland SH9 joined the orchestra for a beguilingly elongated take on the Sarabande from Bach’s Partita No.1 in B flat major, BWV825.
Walter Carlos’s famous “Switched on Bach” is an obvious comparison but it has far more in common with the trippy ambience of Mixmaster Morris’s Irresistible Force with of course Johann Sebastian weaving throughout.
