Classical Music

Bach - Handel - Couperin

One musician, one instrument, 28 composers: Festival prizewinner and jack-of-all-trades Kit Armstrong travels with the audience through the ages. Whether attending one or all five concerts presented by him, the world of piano literature opens up in a completely new way through the eyes of this curious and enthusiastic virtuoso.
Bach was not only the "beginning and end of all music" for Max Reger - the compilation of the program in this second part of the "Five Centuries of Piano Music" series also testifies to the importance of the great composer for the performer Kit Armstrong. This fascination is expressed, among other things, in Armstrong's own arrangements of Bach's organ works. The pieces by the Thomaskantor are contrasted with a completely different tradition of Baroque keyboard music. François Couperin and his composing French colleagues stand for a more light-footed style interspersed with ornamentation, which Armstrong knows how to handle just as confidently as Bach's complex counterpoint - backgrounds that Armstrong charmingly introduces to the audience in his moderation.
