Beautiful Bach, reimagined by the Great Romantic Pianists

Pianist Jayson Gillham explores the special magic that occurs when Bach meets the grand piano. Melody, majesty, and pure romance.

Genius loves company, and from the serenity of the Ave Maria to the grandeur of the D minor Toccata and Fugue, generations of great pianists have made the music of Bach their own. Inspired by that legacy, Jayson Gillham presents a Bach recital with a magical difference: a whole evening of Bach’s best-loved works, as re-imagined for the piano by some of the greatest romantic pianists from Liszt to Rachmaninoff. Virtuoso piano-playing meets music’s most beautiful mind, with results that ravish the ear and refresh the spirit.
