“There is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than András Schiff playing Bach.” – The New York Times

Andras SchiffGrammy Award-winning pianist and conductor András Schiff is one of the most renowned interpreters of Bach, Mozart, Schubert and Schumann. Thirty years after his acclaimed recording of the Goldberg Variations for Decca and a decade after the re-release on ECM, Schiff returns to Bach’s iconic work.

First published in 1741, the Goldberg Variations—a series of 30 movements inspired by a single musical theme—has come to be recognized as one of the most important examples of variation form.

Returning to Chapel Hill, Schiff brings a distinctively melodic, nuanced voice to Bach’s masterwork in a concert that promises an exceptional display of musical genius not to be missed.
