Nick van Bloss piano
Schumann and Bach
- Nick van Bloss piano
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Nick van Bloss (piano) is no longer able to take part in this concert, and the concert has therefore been cancelled. There will be no replacement.
A creation of E. T. A. Hoffmann, Johannes Kreisler was a fictional Kapellmeister whom Schumann also viewed as an alter ego. Supposedly composed to alleviate the insomnia of a Russian diplomat, Bach’s variations are arguably the greatest ever written for keyboard.
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
- Kreisleriana Op. 16
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
- Goldberg Variations BWV988
