Bach Festival in Montréal

Martin Helmchen can be heard today, November 27, with an all-Bach programme in Montréal, Canada. He may well be known chiefly for his acclaimed performances of Beethoven and Mozart, yet Martin Helmchen stresses that “…with Bach, I have the feeling that it is a journey for which one life is not enough… With the six Partitas, for example, I put in question everything I ever did and I’m learning them like someone who opens the score for the first time.”.
