Sir András Schiff and Robert Levin brought this exceptionally talented German-born Iranian pianist to our attention. She has earned a formidable reputation for her stellar Bach performances. In the 2015-16 Season she was invited by Sir András Schiff to take part in his “Building Bridges” concert series in Frankfurt, Berlin, Zurich, New York, Brussels and Dusseldorf. We’re thrilled to present Schaghajegh in her Canadian debut.
J.S. BACH: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
“It is very rare that a young musician is dedicated to the music of J. S. Bach as Schaghajegh Nosrati is. She understands and plays this great music with astonishing clarity, purity and maturity.” — Sir András Schiff
