In a solo improvisation, Bram De Looze seeks a balance between the performance of Bach's music and his own improvisation, between consistency and setting off in any appealing direction, between different ways of approaching and interpreting. As in his previous project Piano e Forte, the instrument and its tuning also play a role. In his playing, De Looze seeks - as Bach himself mentions 'zur Gemüths-Ergoetzung' – to delight the spirit.
