András Schiff “has thought long and lovingly about how to make this music emerge naturally” (The New York Times). This Grammy Award-winning pianist is widely admired for his interpretations of works by Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. “Schiff stands with perhaps only a handful of pianists in his total achievement of the most severe beauty” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
This performance is made possible by generous support from Betsy and Robert Feinberg.
