Discover the influence of Johann Sebastian Bach in a musical journey with New Zealand's most revered pianist, Michael Houstoun.

Featuring piano transcriptions, homages and a new work from composer Ross Harris, this concert explores Bach's music. The piano did not exist during Bach's lifetime, so transcribing for the instrument leaves space for interpretation from each composer - hear how they redesign his music to explore their own musical expression.

Alongside Bach's Partita No 1 in Bb, the programme features Ross Harris' Fugue for Piano, Lilburn's Chaconne, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich and Liszt.

To play a wide spectrum of repertoire is to encounter JS Bach at every turn. Learning a Prelude and Fugue is really the beginning of a pianist's musical education.
