Sir András SchiffPiano

Twisting threads of counterpoint, effervescent wit, and melancholy laments define the music that spans Bach to Brahms on this program. Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in B Minor are sublime, while the poignant tone and opening theme of Mozart's Rondo in A Minor prefigure Chopin. Forlorn episodes appear in Brahms’s final piano works, but also rays of sunshine, gentle cheer, and heroic resolve. Sir András Schiff is a master of this repertoire and “stands with perhaps only a handful of pianists in his total achievement of the most severe beauty” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
