This program is a celebration of the diversity inherent in varying musical languages, and also offers a fresh hearing both of the music of J.S. Bach and in music of an eclectic selection of composers spanning hundreds of years from just about every corner of our globe. In the first half of the program the journey uses Bach’s Preludes and Fugues as unique vantage points presenting relationships between Bach and the music of other European composers from Rameau to Schoenberg. The second half ventures even further out traveling back and forth between Bach and the music of our world past and present: Jazz, Indian ragas, folk songs of central Asia, American gospel, Latin American vallenatos, African Hymns… all music sharing much in common with the greatest Western music composer of all time.
