The festival is exploring Bach's extraordinary contribution to the world of keyboard and orchestra literature.</p> <p>Friday in the first portion of Up to Date, guest host Brian Ellison talks with pianist Konstantin Lifschitz about his four recitals that will display the majesty of Bach's varied work. We'll learn how Bach's compositions, masterfully designed, came from a man who also had an exploratory, improvisatory angle brought about by the composer's fertile imagination.</p> Thu, 09 Feb 2012 23:28:44 +0000 Stephen Steigman & Brian Ellison 12273 at http://kcur.org Kansas City Festival Celebrates Composer Johann Sebastian Bach
