Sunday night partita

August 2, 2009

Earlier this week I marked the anniversary of Bach’s death with some of his music for solo violin, but the man has been on my mind in the meantime, and so I thought that tonight I would return to him.  Here is a performance of several sections of his Partita No.1 for keyboard (BWV 825).  The pianist is Piotr Anderszewski, and he plays beautifully.  The technical quality of the video is unusually high; I’ve seen a lot of video of pianists playing pianos, but few that get this close to the music making. (Online score)
