This edition’s world music pieces see themselves as a creative compositional dialogue between Johann Sebastian Bach and non-European musical cultures as well as other periods of music history. The richness of detail, transparency and polyphonic structure of Bach's music are also important for the works in this collection. Pianists should not expect jazzy variations of his works. Rather, classical and (late) romantic music, ragtime, jazz, samba, bossa nova, salsa, Balkan, minimal music, pop, gospel, atonal, African and oriental sounds are interwoven with Bach's music, which is quoted and reinterpreted. This might serve as an inspiration to play Bach's piano works as a "counterpoint" to the pieces in this edition.
