JS Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier Book 2
Sir András Schiff, piano
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 in the 2017 season, distinguished pianist and Bach specialist Sir András Schiff returns to the BBC Proms 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.
