Enthusiastic Audience is Thrilled by Bach and Sons at the BYU Summer Organ Workshop

An audience of over 300 were thrilled with Dr. Jeannine and David Jordan’s performance of Bach and Sons, their innovative organ and multi-media concert experience, on Tuesday evening, August 4th, 2015 at Madsen Hall on the Brigham Young University campus.  Bach and Sons was presented as the opening concert of the 2015 BYU Summer Organ Workshop.

The fascination of Bach and Sons is the blending of various artistic elements into one story. The audience was instantly engaged in the story of Johann Sebastian Bach and his family.  The historically informed organ performance of Dr. Jeannine Jordan, who also wove the story together through the narrative of the women in Bach’s life, created an experience that immersed the audience in the story and provided a memorable concert experience.

Live projection on a large cinematic-sized screen moved the story forward visually and showcased the organ music against a continuously changing backdrop of creative visuals by David Jordan. The audience traveled with Bach and his sons through the trials and tribulations of the challenging life they shared and gained insight into the human being and what he went through to create the music he made.

Bach and Sons in Florida

We started the year in the Sunshine State with a performance of our exciting audience-engaging organ and multi-media concert experience, Bach and Sons,  in the community of Largo, Florida.  The performance was part of the Art for Faith’s Sake Concert Series at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and was presented on Sunday, January 18th, 2015.

The audience was thrilled with the performance and the comments following ranged from “I finally know Bach as a man” and “I loved your performance of the glorious St. Anne Fugue” to “When I was a little girl in Leipzig I visited the Thomaskirche”  and “You’ve encouraged me to read more about this incredible family of musicians.”

That’s exactly what our Bach and Sons concert experience is designed to do — bring the family of Bach alive through music, narration, and visuals.  There is something captivating for every audience member–young and old– from the tremendous music of JS Bach, to the interesting anecdotes about family life, to the photos and videos placing you in Bach’s homes and churches, to the live camera feeds of my playing projected to a cinematic-sized screen.  As another audience member declared, “Bach and Sons was simply amazing.”

Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist and David Jordan, media specialist are the creators and performers of Bach and Sons.

Bach and Sons in Dornheim, Germany

We performed our multimedia-organ concert, Bach und Söhne at Bach’s Wedding Church: St. Bartholomäus Traukirche, Dornheim Germany

The ties to the past in this church was thrilling to realize.  Here we were, performing our organ and multi-media event, Bach und Söhne, sharing the story of Bach’s life with our 21st-century technology  in the very church where Johann Sebastian married his cousin Maria Barbara 307 years earlier.  Jeannine narrated the concert in German, the language the pastor of this village church would have used to marry Johann and Maria Barbara — another tie to the past.

The organ, in a lovely Baroque case, was built by Schoenefeld in 1996. It is a two manual and pedal tracker instrument of 19 stops and is an historic replication of   instruments Bach would have played. The builder, by using techniques of the 17th century organ building, ties the present and future to that glorious past.  The rooms and voicings of the historic organs are founded on truths of acoustics that are still applicable today. Yet another tie that is passed on for generations.
