‘The meditation, sobriety and modesty of Bach’s music are profoundly moving. In this era when so much importance is granted to appearances, his music remains, pushes us to introspection and raises existential questions that, despite the passage of centuries, remain topical. ‘I have chosen works transcribed by Busoni, Siloti or Kempff, and not that of works written for harpsichord, for their transcriptions hold out a thread between Bach’s era and our modern world.

That is tangible proof of the universality and timelessness of his music: it throws a bridge between men of different centuries. ‘Thierry Escaich’s music also has its roots in Bach’s. So it is that his latest works recall the music of the cantor of Leipzig, whilst strangely tinting it with the colours of the 21st centuries: bouquets of colourful harmonies, wild rhythms, moments of mystical ecstasy… ‘Béatrice Berrut Recognized on the international scene and by her peers asa major artist, for her debut on the Aparté lable, the Swiss pianist Béatrice Berrut gives us a highly intimate vision of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music.

For this, she is accompanied by a Bösendorfer piano prototype and the microphones of Nicolas Bartholomée, set up in the setting of Flagey, a multi-disciplinary arts centre in Brussels.
