Houstoun Celebrates Bach through Jazz and Classical

From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 19 April 2017

Michael Houstoun has a full Bach performance calendar on his plate: it starts with a jazz reworking of the Bach D minor keyboard concerto with the Rodger Fox Big Band, then next month he plays all of Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier for the Institute of Registered Music Teachers Celebrate Bach weekend at the University of Auckland. This comes hard on the heels of Mozart concerts with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. Michael discusses how jazzed up Bach alters his approach to the classical.
