The musical meeting of jazz and Bach

Bach’s Musical Offering is actually a game gone wild. In 1747, when he was already rather elderly, Bach allowed himself to be feted by the music-loving King Frederick II of Prussia. ‘In exchange’ Frederick gave Bach a musical theme and invited him to improvise on it. At the king’s summer palace, Sanssouci, surrounded by one of Europe's finest instrument collections, that challenge was transformed into an undisputed musical monument. Bach's classic example of counterpoint inspired saxophonist Robin Verheyen to also dip his toe into Bach's Baroque world. After all, theme and variation is the basis of the jazz that has given him his comet-like career. In this latest project, he and three top colleagues from both sides of the Atlantic search for the essence of music.
