This, I think is the best way to describe Bach.
Baroque music, finds full expression in his works full of energy, full of virtuosity.
Actually this music, created for other instruments, will find its full realization, in the piano.
If you love the piano, then, do not miss the concert of tonight, Homage to Bach, of Alexander Tharaud, young French talent.
