About This Event

The two volumes of Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier are a window onto an extraordinary musical imagination – an infinitely varied, beguiling series of musical reflections and questions.

Following his complete performance of Book 1 last year, distinguished pianist and Bach specialist Sir András Schiff returns to perform the complete Book 2. Much more than just a musical sequel, this volume pushes harmony and counterpoint further than ever before in its fascinating and uniquely challenging sequence of works.

There will be no interval

Broadcast on BBC Four on Friday 31 August
