Andrew Violette has a deep affinity with Bach's clavier and organ music and has been performing it since his youth. What distinguishes his performances is that they challenge, even alter, commonplace perceptions of time and mood. Extreme tempi coupled with a preternatural clarity of detail create a hallucinogenic world where short, fast pieces seem to last considerably longer than their performance times would suggest, while longer, slow pieces are telescoped, and flash by in a moment of subjective time.
