With sincere thanks to John and Irene Garran who made this CD possible.


In October 2018, FQ and Genevieve Lacey’s recording of Elena Kats-Chernin’s Re-invention No. 1 was included on an incredible Deutsche Grammophon and Decca release: the 222-CD “Bach 333 – The New Complete Bach Edition” is the largest and most complete box set ever devoted to the work of a single composer. 

Re-inventions No. 1 is featured on the final disc in the set, “New Colours of Bach”.
