Bach on the Block

Both composers and improvisers, baroque musicians and jazz musicians are closer than you might think. Their singular vision of the musical object allows them to explore immediacy and freedom of play.
Pauline Bartissol (cello) and Jean-Charles Richard  (saxophone) will mix their own imagination with the
masterpiece by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), an absolute master of writing for solo instrument and who brought the art of the Suite to its perfection .

Here, the intention is to find and serve the intention of the composer by circumventing the reference versions, to replace these suites on the territory of popular music and dances and to divert the object to draw from it freshness, freedom and new sounds.
