Sir András Schiff, piano
(UMS Digital Presentation)

 

“[Sir András Schiff] is one of the most penetratingly serious masters of the keyboard before the public today. Full stop.” (Boston Globe)

Schiff recorded this multi-camera program for just a few US presenters in the iconic Church of St. Peter in Zurich, Switzerland’s old town. One of music’s most revered pianists, he was originally scheduled for an in-person recital this month, five years after his last UMS appearance.

J. S. Bach Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue in d minor, BWV 903
Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 17 in d minor, Op. 31, No. 2 “The Tempest”
J. S. Bach Capriccio on the Departure of his Beloved Brother, BWV 992
Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 26 in E-flat Major, Op. 81a “Les Adieux”
Schumann Arabeske in C Major, Op. 18

In 2006, Sir András Schiff did a series of lecture recitals at Wigmore Hall focused on Beethoven’s piano sonatas, including the two on this program.  Listen to his exploration of Sonata No. 17 and Sonata No. 26.
