Re:Bach World Debut September 18, Royal Palace Stockholm. First re-composition of Bachs Violin Concertos. Closing the borders.
In 2012, the British film composer Max Richter made world-wide success with his re-composition of Vivaldi's classic “The Four Seasons.” Inspired by Richter´s project, composer Johan Ullén accepted the task of re-composing Johann Sebastian Bach's four concertos for violin and orchestra. He begins where Richter ends, and leads Bach's music deep into minimalistic, electronica, film and pop music, while the fundaments are firmly rooted in Bach's brilliant and poignant original score.
By thoughtfully including Bach in to our contemporary musical customs, it is evident how the two genres are unexpectedly intertwined. As we implement these adaptations of Bach into the current-day styles of music, one can hope that the discovery of classical music will become of more availability to younger generations of audience members, as well as giving seasoned listeners a new delight.
Re:Bach is initiated by the Swedish star violinist Christian Svarfvar.
Christian Svarfvar, Violin soloist
Maria Eklund, Conductor
Johan Ullén, Composer
World-premiere will take place at Stockholm Royal Palace, September 18th at 7:30 pm.
Risks and challenges
The concert is already planned and booked. All the musicians are booked as well as the concert hall. The music score is printed by publisher (Svensk Musik) so unless I, the soloist, get severe sick, I can´t see how there could be any challenges, at least none that aren´t easy to overcome.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
