Bach Piano Concertos

Thursday, December 7, 2017, 8pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

Bach wrote many concertos for harpsichord throughout his lifetime, and given his attraction to the possibilities of counterpoint and harmony, it comes as no surprise that one keyboard could not satisfy his imagination. In this program, Simone Dinnerstein teams up with fellow pianists Philip Lasser, Awadagin Pratt, and Dan Tepfer for an unparalleled performance of Bach’s concertos for one, two, three, and four keyboards.
