WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Part of the BBC Proms.
Grammy Award-winning pianist Sir Andr?s Schiff is a titan of the keyboard, bringing his distinctive blend of clarity and authority to repertoire from Bach to Bart?k. Tonight he continues his long association with Bach's music in a performance of the composer's ?Goldberg' Variations ? a monumental work composed, according to its title-page, ?for the refreshment of the spirits'. The resulting Aria and variations are a compositional wonder, a sequence of musical miniatures unequalled in all Bach's output. Finish time approx. 23:30
