Quotes & Highlights

“Here was an astonishing demonstration of how to hold a capacity audience spellbound simply by applying the purest musicianship to the purest music.” – The Daily Telegraph, London

Description

The great Hungarian pianist returns to Cal Performances for a rare recital! Andras Schiff’s recent activities include the creation of his own chamber orchestra, the Cappella Andrea Barca, and increased conducting and recording engagements. But it is in concert and recital halls where his true genius shines most brightly. It is here that a rare alchemy is achieved, a true equilibrium among the emotional, intellectual, and physical aspects of playing an instrument. “Here was an astonishing demonstration of how to hold a capacity audience spellbound simply by applying the purest musicianship to the purest music” (The Daily Telegraph, London).

Program: Haydn/Capriccio in G Major on “Acht Sauschneider mussen sein;” Sonata in E Minor; Variations in F Minor; Beethoven/Sonata in G Major, Op 31, No 1; Sonata in C Major, Op. 53, Waldstein
