On Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 8 PM, pianist Andras Schiff will perform a huge program of the works of Bach and Beethoven at Carnegie Hall/ Stern Auditorium.
“András Schiff would make Bach proud,” wrote the New York magazine of one of Schiff’s recent performances. In fact, “there is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than pianist András Schiff playing Bach” (The New York Times).
The pianist comes to Carnegie Hall to perform one of the composer’s most beloved series of keyboard works, the “Goldberg Variations”, as well as its counterpart from the later Classical period, Beethoven’s “Diabelli Variations”.
• András Schiff, Piano
• BACH Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
• BEETHOVEN Thirty-Three Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli, Op. 120
Here is Mr. Schiff, talking about music, and about his own musical development:
The program at Carnegie Hall is likely to last for more than three hours, including intermission. As such, it is ideal for folks (like me), who love to “overdose” on music when it is performed by an outstanding interpreter.
Here is the audio from the Bach Goldberg Variations, as played by Schiff:
Here is another great pianist, Alfred Brendel, playing Beethoven’s “Diabelli Variations”:
Wow! If I were located anywhere close to NYC, I sure would run to this concert;
