Bach&Berg, creating the album

Thanks for visiting my Kickstarter page! I’ve launched this page to raise fundings to finish, produce and release “Bach&Berg”. WE'VE GOT EXACTLY 30 DAYS to raise the minimum of 6000,- EURO. It's all or nothing at all. Will you help me get it together? Chip in and spread this page to all the music-lovers you know on the planet! Thanks a lot, I'll keep you posted!

taking part

By backing my kickstarter project you are not only helping me and supporting the arts and allowing a beautiful and unique modern piano album to be born, there’s the rewards as well! Please take a moment to check them out and hopefully you’ll see one that appeals to you. From signed cd’s to houseconcerts and even co-producer backers are wanted.

don't know my project?

“Bach&Berg” is a solo piano project in which I (the Berg in the title) play Johann Sebastian’s music, rearrange it, improvise on it and make it into contemporary interpretations. Perhaps not exactly the way the maestro himself used to do, but that's because it's 2016. Combined with new, Bach inspired- original material you get “Bach&Berg”.

about me

My name is Edwin Berg and I’m a pianist from the Netherlands. In my 20+ years of stage and recording experience as a bandleader, composer and improviser, I’ve had the good fortune to play with my groups on music festivals and clubs all over the world. Being both widely acclaimed by international press, as well as making prizewining records. As the Granada press put: “Berg’s lyrical music creates landscapes of exceptional beauty” (Spanish press after winning the international Concours in Granada) Amongst other recent releases two trio cd’s were released with Beejazz records in France and the latest release was “Vuurproef” with spoken word enemble “Dichters Dansen Niet” (poets don’t dance). 

piano solo!

Now the time has come for a new and unique project: a piano solo album with a contemporary Bach interpretation and my latest originals. Amongst the Bach pieces are arrangements and variations/improvisations on Prelude in C minor, Siciliano, Little prelude in C and more. Amongst my new originals there are F kiem, Doei Domenico, 20 and more.

thanks!

Either way I thank you for taking an interest in my project and I want to ask you to forward this page or the video to your interested friends/network to contribute even more! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for me will be to finish the layout and artwork for the cd and the recordings and have them be the best and ready by the end of summer! That's a challenge I'm up to however and I've started this project because I have faith in that good outcome.
