Peter Serkin - Cole Auditorium, Greenwich Library - November 25, 2018
Although Serkin plays from a wide-ranging repertoire, here he focused in on the classical-est of the classical, Mozart and Bach. That these lengthy pieces can be memorized is astounding to me. But once certain parts of the brain master that scaffolding, and the muscle memory is in place, then it’s time to become immersed, for a transparency serving the other brain parts that are the source of transcendant wonder! To meld with the Goldberg Variations.
