Piano playing

Music hath charms …

Everything was gloomy yesterday evening. Then I watched Sir András Schiff play Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Only on BBC4 would you get seventy five minutes devoted entirely to one man playing one piece on the piano. To say it was sublime is an understatement; I knew as I was listening that I couldn’t begin to appreciate the complexities of the music. It’s available to watch again on the BBC iPlayer.

A rather good little piece in The Guardian here.

I will check it out. I love Bbc 4.
Far and away the best channel. I heard rumours the Beeb wanted to axe it! My name will be on that petition.
One to watch at the weekend I think :)
Well worth it.
Planning to watch it this evening with Ralph, who loves Bach very much!
Good for Ralph!
The advantage of watching on TV rather than just listening is all the close-ups of Schiff's hands on the keyboard. A revelation.
