Brad Mehldau's "Three Pieces After Bach," Live at the Paris Philharmonie Philharmonie de Paris

About

Bach's work has shown no bounds in the variety of excellent music it has inspired and jazz is no exception: the Baroque master's compositions have sparked the imaginations of countless jazzmen, including Jacques Louisser, Joachin Kühn, Dan Tepfer, and of course Brad Mehldau. When the American pianist premiered his "Three Pieces After Bach" project at Carnegie Hall, he clarified that his unique approach "is not about making Bach jazzy", adding, "I have nothing against that but my program only includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach or my own music."

Mehldau is one of the most influential jazzmen of recent decades. He has shared the stage with musical legends as diverse as Charlie Haden, Lee Konitz, Renée Fleming, and Anne Sofie von Otter, and his music has played key roles in cinematic masterpieces like Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut."
