Tuesday 31st October 2023, 8:00pm

Bach Partita No 6 BWV 830

Szymanowski Mazurkas Op 50, Nos 3, 7, 8, 5, & 4
Bartók Bagatelles Op 6
Bach Partita No 1 BWV 825

From Bach to Bartók, pianist Piotr Anderszewski finds fascinating connections between composers whose visionary ideas would change keyboard music forever.

The peerless music of J S Bach bookends this concert. Anderszewski is renowned for his interpretations of Bach. He brings that special affinity to pieces which, unusually for the time, boast dramatic dynamic contrasts. This is music that reveals Bach’s awe-inspiring ability to weave whole worlds of sound from the simplest ideas.

Bartók’s pioneering Bagatelles laid down a blueprint for the composer’s style. Radical harmonies and clean lines jostle with Hungarian and Slovak influences. The revolutionary results prompted Busoni to declare: ‘at last, something truly new’. Szymanowski, from Anderszewski’s homeland of Poland was another true original. His mazurkas marry mind-bending rhythmic patterns with folk-like melodies.
