Dan Tepfer ~~ Variations on Bach's Goldberg Variations ~~ Cully, April 2015


JAZZ MEETS BACH


What did Ingmar Bergman say ~ only he who is well prepared has any opportunity to improvise ~ ?

This is a very interesting, intelligent and beautiful set of improvisations and variations on Bach's Goldberg Variations, by the French-American pianist Dan Tepfer. There's a deep sense of exploration and discovery, as well as love for the music that inspired it. 

1 - Solar (Evans / Davis - the announcer credits Bill Evans, but I think this was originally from Miles Davis' Walkin'

2 - All I heard was nothing (Tepfer)

3 - Variations on Bach's Goldberg Variations

Temple, Cully; 15th April 2015, and broadcast by Espace 2 on 29th June 2015
