The Bach Preludes and Fugues are a collection of sublime musical utterances and also the best keyboard training system ever conceived. Michael Houstoun says: “As students we are only partly aware of the value of this music and it is easy to think we’re ‘done’ with Preludes and Fugues once we’ve passed our exams. But it is only as mature performers that the full glory of Bach’s genius can be realised – all of rhythm, harmony and melody is here along with the most beautiful and generous understanding of human nature.”

The Festival is delighted to welcome New Zealand’s leading concert pianist back to Wanaka for this sparkling Bach programme – and for the Mozart concertos with the CSO.
