Gerardo Iacoucci has already ventured into the relationship between jazz and classical music by writing scores for the Aura Trio ('Chamber Jazz Trio', 2011). Now the Maestro is proposing a work on Johann Sebastian Bach, which he also arrives at through the study of Lennie Tristano. In his new project, Iacoucci avoids acting on the music of the composer from Eisenach in the sense of 'classical standards'. Rather, he identifies a "leading sound" in the Bachian cello, which he uses in the seven pieces of the "Bach Suite in G major", to which he has added the "Sonata No. 1 BWV 1001" and the "Sonata No. 2, Second Movement, BWV 1028" for cello and harpsichord.
