The New York Times recently proclaimed, “There is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than pianist András Schiff playing Bach.”
András Schiff, the world-renowned proponent and interpreter of the keyboard works of J.S. Bach, embarks on a comprehensive exploration of Bach’s life and music, a rare opportunity for San Francisco audiences to hear the composer's complete keyboard canon. Through a series of recitals, lectures and concerto performances over two seasons, Schiff will delve deeply into the artistry and unique musical language of one of Western culture’s most influential composers.
"To me, he's a divine presence and the greatest composer of all time"
— András Schiff on J.S. Bach
Schiff plays the Prelude in C major from The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1
Fugue in A major from The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1
"Maybe the definition of a master is elusive. But somehow you know one when you hear one, as was clear on Monday night when the pianist András Schiff played a recital before a full house of rapt listeners at Carnegie Hall." Read the full review on NYTimes.com.
