The Colorful Clavier
What color is B-flat major? According to pianist András Schiff, it’s brown.
Schiff’s literally colorful interpretation of music is behind the 92nd Street Y online project "The Well-Tweeted Clavier," a 48-day exploration, through video and trivia, of each prelude and fugue of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier.
Can’t get enough colorful Bach? Schiff will join the Philharmonic April 4–6 to perform two Bach keyboard concertos and conduct music by Bach-devotees Mendelssohn and Schumann as part of The Bach Variations: A Philharmonic Festival.
