"Bartmann's subtle creations, which never deny Bach, generate maximum sensuality with a colourful and multi-faceted exhaustion of the tonal possibilities of the instrument...Virtuosic, vital and fascinating."Recklinghäuser Zeitung, 22-7-2019
Focus op muzikale essentie van preludesIn Bachs preludes zijn ontelbare minimalistische structuren te vinden. Zijn karakteristieke compositietechniek verandert kleine muzikale ideeën en motieven in een artistiek weefsel. Minimale muziek bracht, een voorheen onbekende, radicale eenvoud voort. Sebastian Bartmann gebruikt minimalBACH om te focussen op de muzikale essentie en effecten van de individuele preludes van Johann Sebastian Bach. De pianist wil de schittering eruit halen en een nieuw licht op de preludes werpen met de technieken van minimal music en de sonore beelden van filmmuziek. Fascinerend, het is alsof je door een caleidoscoop kijkt.
