Christian Zacharias piano

Haydn Sonata in G minor HobXVI:44

Bach Partita No.3 in A minor BWV827
Haydn Sonata in E flat major HobXVI:52

For Christian Zacharias, playing the piano is all about finding a connection. ‘It is the essence of the music that I am trying to convey’ he says. ‘I want to present music as a language and a means of story-telling. I want to show other people what amazes me, what is hidden beneath the notes’. Imagine the wonders that he’ll find tonight, in a programme devoted to two supreme masters of the keyboard. Each of Haydn’s piano sonatas creates a little world of fantasy and invention. In Zacharias’ hands they’re the perfect foil for the timeless genius of Johann Sebastian Bach.
