This selection of some of Bach’s most perennially popular keyboard music admirably demonstrates the many varied facets of the composer’s fertile imagination.
These performances exemplify perfectly the thoughtful and persuasive approach that András Schiff adopts when playing Bach.
Deep pathos is contrasted with witty humour, serenity is paired with fleetness of foot, and all these emotions prove that this brilliantly expressive musician is as ‘unique and unequalled’ today as he was when his first biographer, J.N. Forkel, wrote so eloquently about him more than two centuries ago.

“Late 1980s performances that capture Schiff at his most engagingly spontaneous, bringing the lightest of cantabile touches to pieces often weighed down with 'greatness'.”
