This event has ended.

  Whether tackling Bach’s Goldberg Variations on a dual-manual piano or playing a Messiaen magnum opus from memory, Christopher Taylor has consistently wowed Miller Theatre audiences with his smart, bold performances. This time, he pairs selections from Bach’s “Clavier-Übung” (“Keyboard Practice”) with Frederic Rzewski’s virtuosic and politically charged variations on “The People United Will Never Be Defeated!” for an unforgettable night of pianistic fireworks.
