The Sea of Inspiration

Only Brad Mehldau can take hold of standards or songs by the Beatles and even Radiohead and play them as if they were his own. Now the renowned jazz pianist dedicates himself to Johann Sebastian Bach, about whom Ludwig van Beethoven is said to have once said: »Not Bach, but Meer should be his name.« Indeed, the sea of Bach's inspiration exerts an endless attraction on musicians and music lovers to this day. The Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra will perform various Bach arrangements by Igor Stravinsky, Luciano Berio and Anton Webern, among others. In addition, Brad Mehldau plays a thematic improvisation and takes over the solo part in the piano concerto composed by him. »As a professional organist, Bach incorporated much of his experience of a competent improviser into his music. During his lifetime it was the virtuosity and complexity of his improvisations for which he was most admired ... Some three centuries after the fact, Brad Mehldau takes up this tradition and applies it to his own tribute to Bach’s art. [He] surveys shared ground of the works of various keyboardists, improvisers, and composers, making the implicit parallels between his and Bach’s works explicit.« (Timo Andres)
