Quotes & Highlights

“András Schiff’s recital was one of the great musical events of the season.” —Washington Post
Meet András Schiff for an exclusive CD signing immediately following the concert at the Symphony Store in the lobby.


To experience Beethoven’s piano sonatas is to understand his far-reaching impacts on music, culture, and the modern musical mind.

András Schiff concludes his two-year cycle from last year with the last of Beethoven’s profoundly innovative output. Schiff’s recordings of all of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas are considered among the finest on disc.

March 29: Sonatas nos. 27, 28, 29

April 5: Sonatas nos. 30, 31, 32.
