Improvising on Bach is as playing a trick on the theories of Bohr, Einstein or Hawkins. Say Bach and you say ‘perfection of music’, no changes needed/Bach’s music is perfect, complete and needs no changes. Anyway, that was the general thinking … Improvising on Bach’s music was for several years in the back of my mind, like a dormant volcano. But before coming out with this/But before I would take Bach’s music and use it to create music with freedom, one must master Bach’s music to the letter. Bach’s idiom was thé source of inspiration to combine contemporary idioms to music of more than 300 years. The result : a varied programme , taking Bach’s music in unexpected directions
