‘Red Bull Flying Bach’ creative performance visualizes and revives Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier crossing the borders of serious music and youth culture. Note by note. Step by step. With piano, harpsichord and electronic beats. With head spins, power moves and freezes. With visuals and a storyline, 70 minutes long.

The world’s most popular breakdance crew has been founded by Vartan and Amigo in Berlin. Since 1993, the Flying Steps have won four breakdance world championships (2x Red Bull Beat Battle, 2 x Battle Of The Year) and are well known for their successful musical projects and top-class performances on big stages around the world. Their role in the scene has grown through their social commitment and their own dance school, the Flying Steps Dance Academy. For their first own production, Red Bull Flying Bach  have been awarded with the highly reputated “ECHO KlassikSonderpreis 2010″, a music award for outstanding achievements in classical music.

Whoever attended the first Red Bull Flying Bach Qatar back in 2012, will have the opportunity to renew his amazing previous experience, and, for those who missed the event in Doha two years ago, will now have the chance to attend a spectacular show at the Theatre, QNCC, at 8 PM.

“Let the Well-Tempered Clavier be your daily bread”, famous German composer Schumann suggested in his work ‘MusikalischeHaus- und Lebensregeln’ in 1850, calling Johann Sebastian Bach’s ground-breaking collection of solo keyboard music “the work of all works” at another occasion. For many exceptional musicians since, the Well-Tempered Clavier has offered the nourishment they required. It is widely regarded as one of the most important works in the history of classical music and the most influential pantonal composition. German conductor Hans von Bülow even called it the “Old Testament for piano players”.
