Bach Prelude and Fugue in G major & G Minor WTC Bk. 2 Schiff.
Andras Schiff returned to Disney Hall Wednesday to play the second book of Bach's Well Tempered Clavier continuing his two year cycle of the complete keyboard works (sans organ) of Bach. Mark Swed, music critic of the Los Angeles Times, wrote that Schiff's performance of book one, which was presented the week before, was"without question the most illuminating and moving and beautiful performance I've heard this year---." He also mentioned Schiff's beautiful singing tone and that the pianist used no pedal except for a pedal point in one of the fugues.
