Bach Keyboard Cycle I: András Schiff

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/bach_keyboard_cycle_i_andras_schiff

At the same time that Isaac Newton was discovering new laws underlying the physical universe, Johann Sebastian Bach radically expanded our understanding of the musical forces of counterpoint and motivic momentum. One of the foremost Bach players today, Hungarian pianist András Schiff begins a multi-season survey of Bach’s solo keyboard works with the first book of The Well-Tempered Clavier, the musical equivalent of Newton’s Principia Mathematica.
