Pianist Luisa Imorde loves innovative combinations- following on from circus dances by Schumann and Widmann and the affair of honor between Woelfl and Beethoven, she now prepares to cast light on Johann Sebastian Bach and Nikolai Kapustin. This is an album whose spectrum ranges from Baroque counterpoint through to polyrhythmic jazz sounds. They could hardly be further apart: Bach and Kapustin lived 250 years apart and on two different continents. One is the indisputable supremo of European classical music, the other a Russian composer known only to a few aficionados in central Europe, someone who transforms musical jazz sequences into formal, classical structures. On Moon Rainbow they alternate. There is no established listening convention for this. The result is a foundation of literally unheard sounds, which makes it possible to hear anew so to speak a familiar old piece by Bach in this new context, explains Imorde.
