Pianist Panos Karan in Bach Around the World Part 4: Siberia

SURREY, UK – Greek-born pianist Panos Karan continues his Bach Around the World series with part four of this musical journey as he travels on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Karan said via email, “Trains for me belong to an era when the journey was as important as the destination itself and this 5,500 miles journey from Moscow to Vladivostok takes seven days. It was at the end of that trip, in Vladivostok’s children’s hospital, in the ICU of the cancer ward that I learned that an audience of one person can be more powerful than thousands.”

In the video, Karan performs Bach’s Prelude and Fugue No. 4 in C Sharp Minor. The video is available online: https://vimeo.com/user10633114.

The videos of his previous musical journeys to Quito, Luang Prabang in Laos, and Athens, Greece, the city of Karan’s childhood, are also available on Vimeo.

In the next musical journey in the series, Karan visits Adelaide, Australia.
