Andras Schiff © Nadia Fromanini

Approximate end time: 11:30pm

Presented by:

J. S. Bach
'Goldberg' Variations 71'

Sir András Schiff piano

There will be no interval

Grammy Award-winning pianist Sir András Schiff is a titan of the keyboard, bringing his distinctive blend of clarity and authority to repertoire from Bach to Bartók.

Tonight he continues his long association with Bach's music in a performance of the composer's 'Goldberg' Variations – a monumental work composed, according to its title-page, 'for the refreshment of the spirits'.

The resulting Aria and variations are a compositional wonder, a sequence of musical miniatures unequalled in all Bach's output.
