To portray this recording of J.S. Bach’s 3 Sonatas for Cello and Piano, a bust of Bach sits against an off-white background with a corkscrew jammed in the top. Half of Bach’s face is filled with wine, while the other half has been “poured” into a glass beside the still-life. Because Bach is like fine wine, or should be listened to in moderation, or simply because his head would make a funny novelty wine bottle. Possibly all of the above. As with their Beethoven cover mentioned earlier, the people at Westminster really had a thing for rarified prop jokes dealing with composer’s busts.
