Opis wydawcy:
Wyjątkowy album jednego z najwybitniejszych kompozytorów i pianistów jazzowych, Brada Mehldaua. "After Bach" to wybrane i zinterpretowane przez Amerykanina kompozycje Jana Sebastiana Bacha z dzieła "Das wohltemperierte Klavier" oraz utwory autorskie Mehldaua.

Na całość składają się cztery preludia i jedna fuga. Po każdym z utworów wielkiego mistrza baroku następuje kompozycja napisana przez Brada Mehldaua i inspirowana dziełem Bacha. Początkiem płyty jest utwór 47-letniego amerykańskiego artysty "Before Bach: Benediction". Dzieło wieńczy Mehldauowska "Prayer for Healing".

Album już doczekał się znakomitych recenzji. Brytyjski "Guardian" napisał: "Doskonała równowaga między przestrzenią i intensywnością".

Editor's info:
Nonesuch releases Brad Mehldau’s After Bach on March 9, 2018. The album comprises the pianist/composer’s recordings of four preludes and one fugue from J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, each followed by an “After Bach” piece written by Mehldau and inspired by its WTC mate. The album begins with Mehldau’s own “Before Bach: Benediction” and ends with his “Prayer for Healing.” Pre-orders of After Bach are available now at iTunes and and include an instant download of the album track “After Bach: Rondo.”

As Mehldau’s label mate Timo Andres says in his After Bach liner note, “As a professional organist, much of Bach’s work took the form of improvisation, and during his lifetime it was the virtuosity and complexity of these improvisations for which he was most admired … Some three centuries after the fact, Brad Mehldau takes up this tradition and applies it to a frustratingly unknowable aspect of Bach’s art.”

Andres continues, “There have always been elements of Mehldau’s style that recall Bach, especially his densely-woven voicing—but he’s not striving to imitate or play dress-up. Rather, After Bach surveys their shared ground as keyboardists, improvisers, and composers, making implicit parallels explicit.”

After Bach originated in a work Mehldau first performed in 2015—commissioned by Carnegie Hall, The Royal Conservatory of Music, The National Concert Hall, and Wigmore Hall—called Three Pieces After Bach.
