<< -- 3 -- Basil Ramsey BACH PASSION
The tough world of commerce and sales faces this mammoth enterprise,
which cannot be neatly categorised [listen -- CD 2 track
13, 1:29-2:11]. Maybe an indulgent act of homage or a mountainous act
of faith. It has to be judged in musical terms and that depends on personal
reactions. I have retreated from my initial outrage to admiration for Caine's
determination to swim through a sea of hungry musical crocodiles. I have
a feeling that he will survive.
Nonetheless, the original remains intact, and Goldberg a la Caine has
to clamour for attention in the market place. It can only exist as a CD
album -- an electronic creation for the 21st century. Maybe
curiosity alone will shatter all predictions [listen
-- CD 1 track 34, 0:00-0:43].
