Following the motto Bach in Jazz, Martin Petzold and Stephan König and his jazz trio do just that: they translate Baroque music into elegant jazz miniatures.
For the first time, arias from Johann Sebastian Bach’s large-scale cantatas and passion settings have been arranged for the realisation of this vocal experiment. The Stephan-König-Trio offers new listening experiences full of inspiration in select movements from the Italian Concerto and the Orchestral Suites.
Two seeming opposites – a score-bound singer and improvising instrumentalists – approach Bach in a completely unheard-of fashion. But fear not: Bach remains Bach – even in Jazz.
