Royal Conservatory, Toronto - Musical Toronto
Tuesday 27 November 2012

Pianist Piotr Anderszewski played a remarkable all-Bach recital at Koerner Hall on Sunday afternoon. It was one of those concerts that might incite would-be pianists to run home, pull the music off the shelf and then collapse in tears at the gap between printed page and what they just heard.

This was not Bach that sounded like this or that great pianist's. This was not Bach played on a period-accurate instrument. Rather, this was the work of a 21st century artist using every means at his disposal to make the music come alive on (a particularly fine example of) a modern concert grand piano.
