Prelude and Fugue No. 10 in E minor

Ricercar No. 2 From The Musical Offering, BWV 1079
Contrapunctus XIX From The Art of Fugue
Piano Concerto (London premiere)
One of the great improvisers of contemporary jazz piano, Brad Mehldau premieres a new piano concerto, commissioned by Britten Sinfonia and the Barbican.
Brad is a pianist that’s really able to get under the skin of the music. He finds new beauty in old melodies – not just with jazz standard, but also in his interpretations of Bach, Bluegrass and Radiohead.
This concert is being recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast and will be available for 30 days after broadcast on BBC Sounds; simply search for Radio 3 in Concert.
