<<  -- 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].
