Bach Stories - Choral preludes by J.S.Bach with performers' improvisations
Aleksander Dębicz – piano
The BACH STORIES programme originated from the fascination of the cellist Marcin Zdunik and the pianist Aleksander Dębicz with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. The Polish artists were inspired by the process of “preluding”, which for the eighteenth-century German organist-composers was both a way of honoring religious services and ceremonies, as well as a road to continuous artistic exploration. The concerts entitled BACH STORIES show the modern continuation of this creative process.
Selected chorale preludes by Johann Sebastian Bach have been arranged for cello and piano by the instrumentalists, giving these works an extraordinary freshness of sound in their performance. The musicians have worked on such well-known compositions asWachet auf (BWV 645) and O Mensch, bewein dein Sünde groß(BWV 622). These works are interspersed with improvised music, i.e. continuing “preluding” on the subject of the Bach miniatures.
In 2017 the BACH STORIES programme has been released as a 2CD album by Warner Classics label.
