[BACH TO BECK] Is nothing sacred? It’s deplorable enough that Portland Cello Project has dared to drag the pristine cello down from the august realms of the classical concert stage to the gutter of beer-stained bars, rock clubs and other déclassé venues, where casually attired attendees actually talk, dance and imbibe while the music is playing. Even worse, over the past six years, the half-dozen cellists have further defiled the instrument’s purity with squalid rock’n’roll, hip-hop and similar perversions, via covers of Radiohead, Britney Spears, Led Zeppelin and Kanye West, among others. Now they’re corrupting the minds of innocent youth by enlisting 10 School of Rock students—yes, on rock instruments!—to desecrate the music of the sainted J.S. Bach, jazz legend Dave Brubeck and some fellow named Beck. In Brahms’ name, where will the madness end?
