Concert for Piano, Vibraphone and Orchestra
Five concertos on themes of  Johann Sebastian Bach for piano, vibraphone and string orchestra The project centres on the idea of creating a form of music in which one hears Bach without Bach being heard. Arash Safaian develops the music ideas already contained in the compositions of Bach and interprets them anew: “For me, Bach’s works are music in its purest form. They require no deconstruction, no historical classification. What I always think is that I am hearing the grammar of music. That is why I have decided to compose music about Bach’s music. That makes it like a view into a landscape that your own eye interprets in a certain way.” Sebasatian Knauer                              Piano Pascal Schumacher                             Vibraphone Zürcher Kammerorchester CD / LP Neue Meister / Berlin Classics Awarded with the ECHO:KLASSIK 2017
