"The touch and tone of Piotr Anderszewski's playing are so seductive," says The Guardian, "that it is easy to forget how classically correct" he is. At Duke Performances, this technically rigorous yet deeply sensitive musician exercises his talent on two of Bach's graceful English Suites, Schumann's flashy Intermezzi, and Janacek's haunting On an Overgrown Path. *** For Bach, Anderszewski is a "perfect conduit" (The Guardian), and he valiantly dispatches the most fiendishly difficult music of Schumann. "That he can absorb an audience with the intense concentration of his pianism," says The Chicago Tribune, "shows a powerful interpretive imagination at work" in tandem with his extraordinary ability. *** PROGRAM: SCHUMANN: Intermezzi, Op. 4 ; BACH: English Suite No. 3 in G Minor, BWV 808 ; JANACEK: On an Overgrown Path, Book 2 ; BACH: English Suite No. 6 in D Minor, BWV 811 *** "Anderszewski is to the present generation of Bach interpreters what Glenn Gould was to his" - Chicago Tribune
