Noa Nini’s new project Letters to Bach is composed of 12 pieces of Johann Sebastian Bach’s instrumental music, for which Nini has written English and Hebrew lyrics, inspired by subjects as diverse as technology, religion, global warming, feminism, and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The project, produced by Quincy Jones, features guitar arrangements by Gil Dor, a guitarist, composer, arranger, and educator who has been Nini’s longtime musical collaborator; and Israeli bassist Or Lubianiker. The trio’s performances are beautiful, with Nini’s voice both soaring majestically and skipping playfully between the notes, intertwining with Gil’s guitar and illuminating Bach’s brilliant polyphony.
