"It can be hard not to wax hyperbolic when confronted with pianist Piotr Anderszewski’s sensitive touch and potent imagination" (The New York Times). The charismatic pianist brings his ingenious interpretational prowess to some of Bach’s most spirited and popular keyboard works, including his sublimely beautiful Italian Concerto. The program also includes selections from his English and French dance suites—early works that have little to do with France and England, and everything to do with Bach’s genius in creating complex yet inviting and eminently listenable music.
