Whatever the truth, Bach wrote his aria & 32 variations in 1740 for harpsichord. Piano is allowed to, or - and yes, it works really well - a saxophone quartet.
The fenomenal Berlage Quartet has set out to do exactly that. In a theater setting to boot. You'll be hearing no less than 7 different saxophones, the rare bass saxophone among them. And you'll notice all sorts of duo's, trio's and quartets hidden in Bach's score, originally meant for the harpsichord.
