Alain Franco [Brussels]
Das Wohltemperierte Klavier - try-out
Next season the pianist and conductor Alain Franco, well-known from his work with Ictus, Rosas and La Monnaie, will be performing Bach’s Wohltemperiertes Klavier. But he is giving a try-out of the concert this season, so that you can already hear a selection of favourite passages from the two books of this work, together with several other works.
The motto for the evening is 'Himmel und Erde'. Franco: "'Himmel und Erde' is the name of a Cologne dish of black and white pudding (laughs), but with regard to the concert I am using it as a generic term that links what Bach called 'the power determined by God' with the worldly mission, personified in the modest person of your humble servant."
