To many jazz pianists, the thought of creating an original composition inspired by the baroque archetype himself, J.S. Bach, would seem like an unnatural undertaking. Not the case for Brad Mehldau. A maverick in the jazz world, this masterful improviser has been crossing genre boundaries since his debut. For this truly unique performance, Mehldau will be performing a work commissioned by Carnegie Hall, Three Pieces After Bach, along with several canonical pieces from The Well-Tempered Clavier.
