The Haiku Reviews: A 400-Year-Old Premiere, Some Beethoven, and Plucked-Up Bach

As I make my way through the piles of new CDs on my desk at work, from time to time I’ll also share some rapid-fire reviews of said albums…in haiku form. Because:

Sometimes the best way
to quickly review CDs
is to use haiku.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

 

Cantatas arranged
as Brandenburg Concerti.
Interesting, but why?

 

 

 

“Beethoven For All”
is this album’s title, which
contains only parts.

 

 

 

Alison Balsom
released three albums this year.
This one is the best.

 

 

 

This guy plucks with Bach
and somehow no one gets hurt.
I wonder, “Who’s next?”

 

 

 

Gabrieli waits
400 years for this disc.
It’s too bad he’s dead.
