  1. Preludes and Fugues Nos 13-24 from Das Wohltemperierte Klavier, 'The Well-Tempered Clavier' - Johann Sebastian Bach

Join Panos Karan in a Bach recital, performing the intimate, virtuosic and colourful 24 Preludes and Fugues from Bach’s first volume of the Well-Tempered Klavier. This is a rare piano experience, with a work considered to be the cornerstone of the piano literature, coupled with humour and unique stories from the four corners of the globe. In part two of this cycle Panos Karan will present Preludes and Fugues Nos 13-24.

Panos Karan is a pianist, conductor and humanitarian whose ideas are fast shaping the understanding of classical music in the 21st century. Born in Greece and educated at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Panos has taken music from the world’s top concert halls into the Amazon jungle, to the most impoverished districts of Kolkata, to prisons of war-torn Sierra Leone, and to the evacuation centres of post-tsunami Japan. Most recent performances include four solo recitals at Carnegie Hall, New York, Symphony Hall, Boston, Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, Suntory Hall, Tokyo, Sydney Opera House and Tokyo Opera City, at the presence of Empress Michiko of Japan.

In September 2010 Panos founded the charity Keys of Change helping bring music to young people living under extraordinary circumstances around the world. In 2014 he founded the Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta in Japan, and in 2019 the Accra Youth Sinfonietta in Ghana and the Chennai Youth Sinfonietta in India.

He has recorded Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3 and recently the 24 Chopin Etudes in a live recital at London’s Cadogan Hall.

Panos Karan has visited more than 130 countries, has lived in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Athens, Tokyo and currently resides in London. He speaks seven languages.
