The New York Times wrote, “There is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than pianist András Schiff playing Bach.” Here, the legendary pianist intersperses music by Bartók between Bach works, weaving threads of breathtaking melody, complex counterpoint, and buoyant rhythm into a vibrant musical tapestry. Schiff also performs music by two composers with whom he is closely associated: Janáček’s moody In the Mists and Schumann’s brilliantly characterized set of dances, Davidsbündlertänze.
