Carnegie Hall Perspectives artist András Schiff's Zankel Hall recital on May 2—the final solo recital of his season-long series—includes multiple pieces by Bach and Bartók.
In this pair of videos, Schiff reveals that the music of Bach has always been present in his musical life, and provides a personal and, at times, moving insight into Bartók's life, music, self-imposed and unhappy exile, and death in the US.
