A rare chance to hear the Well-Tempered Clavier by Bach in its entirety. Pianist Libby Burgess tackles this monumental work for keyboard as part of her series performing ‘the 48’ in each of England’s 48 counties. Each movement lasts only a few minutes, but between them they explore a wealth of characters, styles and moods, representing not only a diversity of musical language but also exploring the whole gamut of human emotional experience.
