    Listen: Brad Mehldau Talks Bach and More on "The WTF Bach Podcast"

    Brad Mehldau is the very first guest on The WTF Bach Podcast. He sat at his piano to talk with host Evan Shinners about a whole range of topics, not least his appreciation for the podcast subject, J.S. Bach, from whose Well-Tempered Clavier Mehldau recorded on his 2018 album After Bach, which also includes his own work inspired by the piece.

    Mehldau is "one of the foremost pianists alive," says Shinners in his introduction. "He is without doubt, one of the most influential, one of the most imitated, and certainly one of the most unique musicians around. And I could spend as much time speaking about his accomplishments, his merits as I did talking to him, but I won't because our conversation is much more interesting."
