Bach into Myself

Italian alternative violinist Luca Ciarla pays tribute to his favorite composer revisiting some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s greatest compositions. With a baroque bow, a creative and genuine use of electronics and few toy instruments, Luca finds an astonishing common ground between traditional and contemporary sounds, departing from Johann Sebastian’s works to create dazzling improvisations. A surprising and informal concert, Bach into Myself features also original compositions and music by other composers that have been strongly influenced by the German master, such as Heitor Villa-Lobos and Astor Piazzolla.

It is jazz what Luca Ciarla plays at the castle but also baroque music and much more…everything seems so light, enchanting and beautiful, because the musician crosses the boundaries among musical genres, as they didn’t exist. Listening to him is an astonishing musical experience.” Wolfsburger Nachrichten (Germany)
