Workshop on J.S. Bach WTC - by Mark Lindley - 2nd Dec. 2017 at GZ

Goethe-Zentrum and Hyderabad Western Music Foundation are pleased to present

"Expressive and Structural Intricacies in Bach’s Most Intimate Keyboard Music"

Friday, 2 December, 6:30pm
Hamburg Hall, Goethe-Zentrum
, Journalist Colony, Banjara Hills
Entry: Free & open to all

The 24 preludes in Part I (1722) of J.S. Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier” are beloved among classical pianists but because of their unusually intimate expressive qualities, are seldom performed in concert. Bach himself is not known to have played them for more than one companion at a time. In addition to expressing a wide variety of moods, these pieces are jewels of quasi-mathematical construction. Dr Lindley will describe and demonstrate how the structural aspects of the music underlie its expressivity. The workshop can serve as an introduction to his website on this topic posted by the German National Institute for Music Research.

Mark Lindley is a noted musicologist as well as a historian of modern India and a teacher of economics (serving last year as the University Chair Professor in the University of Hyderabad’s School of Economics). He has published more than a dozen books and more than 100 scholarly papers. Born in Washington D.C. in 1937, he studied at Harvard University (A.B.), the Juilliard School of Music (M.S.) and Columbia University (D.Phil. in musicology), and has taught at Columbia University, Washington University, Oxford University, the University of Zaragoza (Spain), the University of Regensburg (Germany), the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Istanbul Technical University and the University of Kerala.

Snacks will be served at 6.15pm.


Melt Trio (Germany) - Jazz @ Sailing Annexe 23rd Nov.


Melt Trio with Hussain Sagar as a backdrop!

Meyer/Baumgärtner/Meyer, a young jazz trio whose debut album ”Melt” is in many respects its own phenomenon: Here are three virtuosic instrumentalists playing guitar, bass and drums, a compact unit blending all possible influences from progressive and indie rock through to electronic music so strongly compacted that we hear a brand new form of music.”

Julia Siedl Jazz Trio in Concert –

Sunday, 6th. Nov. 7.30pm @ Secunderabad Club

Julia Siedl (Austria) – Piano

Stefan Pista Bartus (Slovakia) - Bass

Andjelko Stupar (Serbia) – Drums

This Music triggers Floods of images in the head. Captivating and Full of Energy. It seems like a dream that doesn´t lead to an end but looses itself. In exuberant moods.  Or in flashbacks that rise from deep within the soul. Then in the next moment new motives arise that overlap the previous and make them vanish and disappear into air, moving the music in a powerful way.

Agitated – this word describes the pianist Julia Siedl very well. Within only a few years Julia Siedl achieved an excellent reputation in the Austrian Jazz Szene. She´s not only a band leader but also very active as a side woman with various projects in the European Jazz and World Music Scene.

Together with her amazing fellow musicians Stefan Pista Bartus from Slovakia and Andjelko Stupar from Serbia, both among the top players in Europe, the trio brings fresh air into Jazz life creating a sound that aims at the future.

Opening act – Joel Sastry

Joel Sastry is a guitarist and  arranger from Hyderabad. Joel played his first gig when he was fourteen, joined a Thrash Metal band at seventeen and continued along that path for a good number of years, playing for multiple bands in the local scene, including 5-star venues (Rock, Jazz, Blues and Lounge).

For over a decade, Joel has worked as a session musician with Indie artists and prominent music directors in the Tollywood film industry. He is now on a journey to produce, arrange and create music of varied styles - from Progressive Rock to Jazz to Thrash Metal to Film Soundtracks.
