With Bach's concertos for one, two and three pianos, the Bach Heritage Festival will be opening with a bang. Evgeni Koroliov, Anna Vinnitskaya and Ljupka Hadzi Georgieva will conjure breakneck piano passages from their instruments as though it were child's play. These top musicians had dreamt of recording the entire concertos for some time. Indeed, the three have a good sense of one another, given that Koroliov and Georgieva are a couple, while Vinnitskaya – the first laureate of the Queen Elizabeth Competition – formerly studied with Koroliov.
