This is a modern take on a series of works by Bach. Unlike the lush orchestrations of the Introspection series this is stripped down with TvL's flute backed by synths, piano and percussion and on the whole it works quite well. This a sort of 'switched on Bach' for the 21st century. Worth checking out.
