Sir András Schiff, piano
About This Performance
At the same time that Isaac Newton was discovering new laws underlying the physical universe, Johann Sebastian Bach radically expanded our understanding of the musical forces of counterpoint and motivic momentum. One of the foremost Bach players today, Hungarian pianist András Schiff begins a multi-season survey of Bach’s solo keyboard works with the first book of The Well-Tempered Clavier, the musical equivalent of Newton’s Principia Mathematica.
“There is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than pianist András Schiff playing Bach.” (The New York Times)
