In 1747, Bach paid a visit to his patron King Frederick the Great. King Freddy, a talented amateur musician, handed him a theme and challenged Bach to improvise. That theme became the basis for Bach’s masterpiece The Musical Offering. The Gryphon Trio joins forces with DJ SlowPitchSound, Cuban-born drummer Dafnis Prieto, trombonist/composer Scott Good, and Roberto Occhipinti on bass, to create a spectacular cross-genre Musical Offering. From the world premiere of a Bach remix, to a special arrangement of John Adams’ dazzling Phrygian Gates, expect an energetic evening of new compositions inspired by Bach’s timeless brilliance.
