Oundle International Festival presents The Big Bach Project, James McVinnie, piano
James McVinnie is a rare creature in that he is both an organist and a concert pianist of international reputation. He has been a regular tutor on Oundle for Organists, and enjoys a career which takes him to the world’s greatest concert halls. This year we present him as pianist as he embarks on an ambitious five-year project to play all the keyboard works of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Launching his Big Bach Project at the 2019 Festival, he begins this amazing undertaking with the Prelude & Fugue in B minor BWV 869 which closes book one of the Well-tempered Clavier, as well as the French Suite No 5 and the French Overture in B Minor BWV 831.
Performance ends at approximately 9.30pm
