Review:
Ian Haygreen’s “An Echo of the Forgotten” is by far the cleverest and most commendable piece of this collection. This composition risks making a fool of Haygreen given the immensity of the challenge that he has undertaken. “An Echo of the Forgotten” uses chords and chord progressions from Bach’s Organ Works and re-frames the great master’s work inside an experimental musical matrix. The result is an absolute triumph for Haygreen who manages to bring Bach to the twenty first century delivering an almost impossible task: to reinterpret J.S. Bach in such a way that it gains in quality. Haygreen’s re-working of J.S. Bach is a sign that we have finally arrived somewhere in the experimental camp after a century of slow progress. Haygreen’s work is experimental music in long trousers.
