Brad Mehldau

Three Pieces After Bach

Mar 16, 2017 • 8:00 pm

One of the great jazz improvisers of our era, Mehldau has long been cited for a “classical” or “contrapuntal” inflection in his signature style. Mehldau is a superb classical technician who can turn jazz standards into Bach-like fugues.

In this solo program, the piano master explores his relationship to Bach from several angles, juxtaposing his own new composition, Three Pieces After Bach, with several canonical pieces from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier and a selection of earlier Mehldau jazz compositions.

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.
