THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY PRESENTS GREAT PERFORMERS
The 2013-14 Great Performers Series—and the season-long San Francisco Symphony celebration of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach—begins with world-renowned pianist András Schiff in recital. One of the leading Bach interpreters of this generation, Schiff performs the complete Bach Partitas. These six suites, containing all the hallmarks of Bach’s musical language—impeccable craftsmanship, profound expressivity, elegance and grace alongside thrilling virtuosity—have represented a Schiff signature since his celebrated 1985 recording, a milestone of the Bach discography.
Co-presented by the San Francisco Symphony and San Francisco Performances.
