The world-renowned pianist continues his spontaneous series, surprising audiences with a programme that will only be announced from the stage at the very beginning of the concert.
Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal, Sir Andrs Schiff is internationally recognised as a stellar pianist, conductor, lecturer and teacher. His recent performances and recordings have been described as elegant, incisive and uplifting (The Times), a source of joy and solace (The Observer) and a balm to the spirit (The Arts Desk).
As a recitalist, he has performed the complete Beethoven Sonatas in more than 20 cities, including a series of acclaimed lecture-recitals at Londons Wigmore Hall. Other solo projects have included in-depth explorations of the keyboard works of JS Bach, Joseph Haydn, Franz Schubert and Bla Bartk.
Since 2021 he has been determined to bring back an element of surprise to the piano recital. Rather than announce the programme in advance, he will introduce it from the stage, combining memorable music-making with fresh and lively insights into the repertoire he loves.
