The Odyssey continues, with “the outstanding Bach pianist of her generation” (The Sunday Times, London) bringing her brilliant, exuberant artistry to Year 3 of her four-year journey.
Bach’s Toccatas are exceedingly imaginative: daring in harmonic construction and virtuosic in technical level, their improvisatory nature gives a feeling of youthful abandon. The Toccatas are paired with one of Bach’s first commercial successes, the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, also free and improvisatory in nature. The piece was shared widely in his lifetime in manuscript before eventually being published, and the wild modulations of the fantasy are unique in Bach’s output.
