The Devil’s Staircase
Sun 1 Dec: 3pm
Bach Partita No 1 in B flat major BWV 825
Ligeti 18 Etudes
A unique opportunity to hear all Ligeti’s incredibly inventive Etudes. Danny Driver’s performance of these pieces at the Lammermuir Festival led to a standing ovation for his rendering of some of the very hardest
piano music ever written. Staggering virtuosity! The clarity and poise of Bach’s first partita is the perfect contrast.
