Bach’n’Jazz

Flûte Alors!’s classy yet casual programme Bach’n’Jazz pairs masterpieces by the great Johann Sebastian Bach with popular jazz standards. Throughout the concert, Flûte Alors! introduces the audience to the wide variety of sounds of the recorder quartet, from the blended organ-like tones of Bach to the contemporary percussive effects in jazz. Featured works include original arrangements of the celebrated Toccata & Fugue in D minor (BWV 538) and Passacaglia & Fugue in G minor (BWV 582) by Bach, and well-loved jazz standards Fly Me to the Moon and Autumn Leaves.  Bach’n’Jazz embarks on an eclectic voyage that traverses the ages, offering a bouquet of sonorities and a palette of colours to the delight of every audience.

Of Wood and Tin

The sonority of the recorder consort is often compared to that of a small organ, though they are rarely played side-by-side. To allow a true comparison of these related instruments, Flûte Alors! invites Jean-Willy Kunz, organist in residence of the MSO, to combine the sounds, colours and repertoires of these two instruments that are so different, yet so similar. Both grandiose and intimate, the collaboration and competition of this concert will take you from the 15th to the 18th century with the sounds of a positive organ, a grand pipe organ, and over a dozen recorders.
