András Schiff conducts Bach and Mendelssohn

The young Mendelssohn toured extensively, forming indelible impressions of Europe that were inseparable from his musical imagination. Moved by a seaside cave off the Scottish coast, he captured its immense beauty and raw power in Fingal's Cave. Delighted by Italy, he wrote an exuberant paean to that country. It was Mendelssohn the conductor who rekindled interest in Bach’s music in the 19th Century. The amazing András Schiff—Project San Francisco artist and one of the world’s most esteemed interpreters of Bach—conducts two captivating concertos from the keyboard.

“There is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than pianist András Schiff playing Bach." —THE NEW YORK TIMES
