‘exhilarating, confronting and, ultimately, consoling – a musical meditation for our troubled times’ The Independent on Schiff playing Bach
Bach's Partitas are among the most demanding keyboard pieces devised by Johann Sebastian Bach, and multi-award winning pianist and conductor Sir András Schiff is simply one of the most sublime performers in the world today.
Considered one of the great musical thinkers of our time he now focuses on performing the music of Beethoven, Bach, Schubert and Schumann. In recent years Schiff’s Bach recitals have become an annual feature of the BBC Proms. He says 'Together for those two or three hours, we can somehow change the world in to a better place.' A rare treat to hear such majestic playing in Glyndebourne’s ideal acoustic as Schiff returns to Brighton Festival.
