David Fray piano
The final performance this season by David Fray as part of his Carte Blanche Bach with the Goldberg Variations.
CARTE BLANCHE DAVID FRAY III
Bach Goldberg Variations BWV 988
Approximate running time: 1h20
His leading man good looks and natural elegance have been the hallmark of the early years of young French pianist David Fray’s career. Taught by Jacques Rouvier and winner of the Second Grand Prize at the Montreal International Music Competition, he came to public attention with an unconventional but successful recording of Bach and Boulez, an unusual marriage which emphasises his personality and taste for musical affinities. David Fray devotes his three-part Carte Blanche this season to the iconic Cantor of Leipzig. With this final concert he reaches the apogee of the Goldberg Variations, thirty fantastical variations of uncommon intensity which their composer claimed to have penned “for enthusiasts and to entertain the mind”. This is an incredible summary of a whole life of music.
