Album Notes
Bach Converstions is a reimagining of JS Bach's Cello Suite No. 3 by musician/ composer Elissa Goodrich for solo marimba and responding duet improvisations with members of her acclaimed jazz ensemble States of Play and long-time colleague, sublime singer Ria Soemardjo.

'exquisite, ear-opening' The Australian. 'spine-tingling music' TPRReview. 'the beautiful playing of Elissa Goodrich' ABC RN

While the marimba shares a similar timbre to the cello, by adapting the original cello score to this instrument, we immediately travel with Bach and with the marimba into a distinct interpretation of Cello Suite No. 3. with the extraordinary harmonic and melodic qualities that Bach's suite leads us through, Bach Conversations provides a unique musical listening opportunity to enter new and rich conversations with the wonderful, expert guest world and jazz musicians - transcending classical, contemporary and world idioms, by combining all of these elements with these critically acclaimed, contemporary musicians whose expertise range across the idioms. As the title suggests, the CD presents a journey into the myriad emotions, tensions and beauty of the cello suite through a series of Bach Conversations; a musical dialogue between four musical companions and JSBach.
