As part of the BBC Proms 2015 late night Bach series, Schiff will play the most famous, and perhaps the very finest, of the baroque wonderworker’s solo keyboard works: The Goldberg Variations. Bach's thirty-one miniatures begin with an exquisite aria, whose bass line is then transformed into a series of bewilderingly diverse but always-sublime variations. Over the course of 70 minutes, they explore the full range of their instrument's expressivity. When Schiff performed six Bach recitals at Wigmore Hall in 2013, the reviews were astounding. There is little doubt that this performance will be equally remarkable.
£5 Promming tickets available on the day.
