"He found song where others find formula; he conveyed song where others play scales."
Los Angeles Times

Appearing in Australia for the first time in over 20 years, legendary pianist Sir András Schiff performs two imaginative programs of great beauty.

As always with this artist, Bach is at the heart of everything: his ingenuity and virtuosity, as well as his deep faith and humanity, shine through the music of the famous 19th-century composers who followed in his steps.
