Keyboard Conversations: Bach the Spellbinder
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
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.
