A Serious Game

As always, Christian Muthspiel beats capers: from a Bach suite it goes straight to his new cello concerto, from Stravinsky to Kodály. Old music in a new sound is the theme: Muthspiel interprets Bach, Strawinski processes melodies by Pergolesi (which actually come from Galli), and Kodály selects old Hungarian dances. In the spirit one is welcome to dance along.
