J.S. Bach was all but forgotten when Felix Mendelssohn launched a full-scale revival of Bach’s music in 1829—two geniuses from different eras whose music captivates, inspires, and reaches deep into the soul. Hear both composers in the hands of the absolutely riveting conductor and pianist András Schiff. “Schiff performed Bach . . . and transformed the huge and well-filled hall into a bowl of rapt silence” (Independent).
