Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov makes his Pierre Boulez Saal debut with a fascinating project, entitled “Many Pianos”: performing on five different historic instruments—from harpsichord to fortepiano to modern concert grand—he embarks on a journey through three centuries of piano repertoire, performing fantasies by composers from Bach to Schnittke.
