Off With the Cuffs

They all improvised – Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Shostakovich…but what would that sound like? Or if these composers were transported to the twenty-first century? Jazz pianist Stetch offers one possibility, and unravels several iconic written-in-stone classics. The bars just opened up at Johann’s, Amadeus’s, Fred’s and Dmitri’s; cocktail hour, white wigs, no sandals. Foot-tapping is permitted.

Musicians: John Stetch (piano)

Bonus Material: Download the complete score of Stetch’s arrangement of Mozart’s Sonata in B-Flat, K.333
