Especially in the run-up to Christmas occasional moments of calm, introspection and contemplation are much needed and welcome. Johann Sebastian Bach’s Preludes and Fugues provide an ideal “soundtrack” for this kind of mood. In this riveting piano version of the Prelude and Fugue BWV 849, former prodigy Kit Armstrong, who is fast emerging as one of the most interesting young pianists of our time, perfectly captures restrained melancholy in the prelude and crystalline clarity in the fugue. Sit back and relax…
“Musical moments” can be moments of memories or reflection, a retrospect of the past or an anticipation of the future, that are enriched by hearing or thinking of a special piece of music in that same moment. Further artists in the series include Daniel Barenboim, Yuja Wang, Nadine Sierra, Avi Avital and Albrecht Mayer just to name a few.
