Keyboard Conversations: Bach the Spellbinder

Kings Place , King's Cross Wednesday February 13 2013 0:00

The pianist Jeffrey Siegel returns to Kings Place with his Keyboard Conversations series. The theme this time is 'Bach the Spellbinder' and, instead of coming on stage and playing the programme in silence, he starts and ends each piece with explanations of the music – what they meant in historical context, key musical themes to look out for, and funny anecdotes about the composer.

JS Bach-Busoni: Chorale Prelude: 'Rejoice, Beloved Christians', BWV734

JS Bach: Toccata in D, BWV912

JS Bach-Busoni: Chaconne from Violin Partita No 2, BWV1004

JS Bach Preludes in B flat and B flat minor, WTC Book 1, BWV866, 867

JS Bach: Italian Concerto, BWV971

Followed by a Q&A with the audience.
