Marie-Andrée Joerger New CD “Bach en Miroir” - France

Marie-Andrée JoergerMarie-Andrée Joerger CD coverThe new album by Marie-Andrée Joerger entitled “Bach en Miroir” will be released on April 16th, 2021.

Marie-Andrée Joerger pays homage to a musical form, the Prelude and Fugue, so popular throughout the ages.

The mirror effect is created by alternating preludes and fugues by Johann-Sebastian Bach and other great composers, each of whom marked their own era: Balbastre, Mozart, Schumann, Reger and Escaich.

The particularly poetic and varied sounds of the accordion bring a unique dimension to these works, as if they had been written for this popular instrument.
