Pianist Carlo Grante to Make D.C. Concert Debut at the Kennedy Center, 5/14
The spirit of Johann Sebastian Bach will hover over the Terrace Theater of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, as Italian pianist Carlo Grante makes his first concert appearance in the nation's capital, in a program containing not a single note of Bach's music.
Chopin's Preludes were inspired by Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, while Godowsky's Studies offer a combination of Chopin's virtuosic writing and Bach's contrapuntal techniques. In The Great Pianists, Harold C. Schonberg called the Godowsky Studies "probably the most impossibly difficult things ever written for the piano."
