Trio on Ich steh' and Hey Jude [organ]

  • for instrumental trio or for organ

  • Duration 4'

this trio, for organ (two manuals and pedals) or for instrumental trio (any three suitable instruments, e.g. violin-viola-cello, or oboe-clarinet-bassoon) uses the Sinfonia of the Cantata Ich steh' mit einem Fuß im Grabe by J S Bach (BWV 156) (which also appears as the second movement of his Concerto BWV 1056), and Hey Jude (1968) by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, taking the listener on a journey, as they say, "from Bach to the Beatles"

"Love the piece. Very smart indeed how it so delicately transforms from one into the other, like musical scrimshaws subjected to gradual changes of lighting." - Robert Hainault (2020)
