Tzimon Barto is a phenomenon. He is not only one of the most famous American pianists of our time but also a writer and lyricist – in addition he speaks five languages fluently and reads ancient Greek, Hebrew and Latin. The connection between poetry and music is important to Tzimon Barto both as a pianist and as a writer; this is expressed in his musical interpretations. His playing is very personal and unconventional; it makes an impact with its exquisite sound and fascinating contrasts and differentiations.
In the programme for his Bach Festival concert, alongside Ferrucio Busoni’s rarely heard Goldberg arrangement, is a work by the New York composer, Lowell Liebermann, which in 2016 was distinguished by the award of Barto’s own annual composition prize.
