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”.
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).
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.
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
