Biography

Jacques Loussier was born in Angers, in northwestern France, October 26, 1934. He started playing piano at the age of ten and quickly demonstrated tremendous ability. When Loussier was just sixteen, he entered the Conservatoire Nationale de Musique in Paris where he studied with Professor Yves Nat whose youthful compositions were praised by Faure and Saint-Saëns, and whose prodigious ...

A two-for-one reissue of two amazing Loussier discs that were released in the early nineties and promptly withdrawn. A scintillating 1991 trio Bach session and a disc of Loussier's original orchestral compositions.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Plays Bach February 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For the uninitiated, the Loussier Trio has been doing Jazz renditions of Bach's works for over 40 years now. On Amazon alone you can find two or three dozen albums from this catalogue, and it can be difficult to tell them apart.

This particular album is by far the most modern; indeed, there have been more recent releases of remasterings of the original 60s recordings, but this album represents a newer generation of the Trio.

The differences between the two generations Bach treatments are profound. The original interpretations by the Trio were essentially Bach played on Jazz instruments; but in this newer generation, the Trio is playing truly Jazz-styled renditions of the old works, taking more liberty with structure and flow to achieve a distinctive style.

Though the real Jazz (or Bach) afficionados will want to enjoy and contrast the original Plays Bach series with this new generation, if you're just getting into Loussier I would highly recommend this beautiful introduction to the concepts he created. This album stands on it's own as a brilliant Jazz album that nearly anyone can appreciate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Encore! Jacques Loussier Plays Bach October 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
For Bach and jazz lovers alike, this is a nice holiday treat...relax with a glass of wine while Wrapping unwrapping gifts or enjoy it over an intimate dinner with friends.

Jacques Loussier Plays Bach, a new two-disc recording from Telarc set for release on October 23, 2007. The French musician has been recording for close to 50 years, easily solidifying his career as a diverse and talented musician.Originally recorded in the early 1990s, the set as a whole spotlights Loussier's numerous strengths as both a jazz innovator and a classical composer. Disc 1, recorded in Miraval, France, in 1991, features the new Loussier Trio assembled in the late '80s after the hiatus. This new lineup delivers innovative jazz renditions of J.S. Bach compositions: Little Fugue in G Minor, Concerto in F Minor, Concerto in C Minor, Partita in B-flat Major. Few surprise sounds include rock rhythms and Caribbean inflections. Disc 2, recorded in Prague at Czech Radio Studio 1 in April 1992, features original classical compositions by Loussier, in which he stays true to the sound of a chamber orchestra. The opening of the violin concerto, "Prague," has resonances of Brazil and Piazzolla, leading up to the dialogue between violin and drums that concludes the movement. Encore! -- studioexpresso

4.0 out of 5 stars Appeals to the Young November 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I homeschool my children and I've always played classical music in the background. Every week, I rotate composers and post pertinent facts on the board with a "Now Playing" list. My 12 year old son mentioned that he would probably like classical music better if there was percussion or drums. This was the first one I found and they all love it...Bach comes alive to them. I know it's probably sacrilegious to classical music lovers. But it's a nice twist that appeals to the young

4.0 out of 5 stars A cool musical crossover January 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is fun! This is my only exposure (so far) to Jacques Loussier. I heard it by chance on a college radio station, and ordered a copy right away. I've always enjoyed blends of classical music into other styles, and it's cool to hear Bach accompanied by jazz style walking bass.
