‘BEGINNING WITH BACH’…
The Christian Garrick Quartet:
Christian Garrick – 4, 5 and 7 string violins
David Gordon – piano and
Paul Moylan – double bass
Tom Hooper – drums and percussion
Following in a long and respectful tradition of jazz musicians gaining inspiration from the music of Bach, the Christian Garrick Quartet takes a wry and light-hearted look at his music in ‘Beginning With Bach’.
When pondering Bach combined with jazz, one recalls the legendary Jacques Loussier Plays Bach Trio for whom the quartet once had the honour of opening a concert at Chichester Cathedral. The CGQ created a Bach-styled programme of their own especially for 2013’s Bach Unwrapped Festival held at London’s King’s Place and, following this success, are now touring the show nationwide.
Included in the programme are original jazz compositions based on Bach’s keyboard preludes, irresistible arrangements of some of his compositions, and Bach-based music from such luminaries as George Shearing and Chucho Valdés.
