      >> Hallo,
      >> beim Stöbern im Internet fand ich eine Notiz zu einem Konzert in Seatle.
      >> Vielleicht ein Hinweis für die, die sich mit ähnlicher Musik befassen
      >> (wahrscheinlich wissen die schon Bescheid). Ich habe die Beschreibung der
      >> drei Choral Preludes zusammen mit der Adresse reinkopiert. Viel
      >> Vergnügen!

      >> The vernacular has always found its way into music of the church. Since
      >> the 1960s, gospel, jazz and pop have been used in the song repertoire of
      >> the modern church. A particularly successful marriage of the traditional
      >> and contemporary are to be found in the Choral Preludes of Johannes
      >> Matthias Michel (b. 1962), as in his Organ, Timbrel and Dance, Three Jazz
      >> Organ Preludes. The composer himself is music director of the Christus
      >> Kirche in Mannheim, Germany, where it is still the tradition to improvise
      >> preludes on the appointed chorales. Using three traditional Lutheran
      >> chorales as the cantus firmus, the daring treatments are in various jazz
      >> styles. Swing Five, with its walking bass line, seems inspired by Duke
      >> Ellington. The second movement, Bossa Nova, is reminiscent of Antonio
      >> Carlos Jobim, whereas the last movement is a boisterous tribute to
      >> Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story.
