“A performer who sometimes seems to move in his own atmosphere, stirred by some inner breeze or lit by an inner light” - The Washington Post

Known for his exquisite performances and eloquent musical commentary, eminent pianist Sir András Schiff brings an evening of inspired playing to The Music Center at Strathmore, presented by Washington Performing Arts.

Sir András has collaborated with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors and has been recognized with the International Mozarteum Foundation’s Golden Medal, Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gold Medal, and Germany’s Great Cross of Merit with Star, among many others. In recent years, his Bach has become an annual highlight of the BBC Proms, and he has performed complete cycles of the Beethoven sonatas, Bach concerti as well as works by Haydn, Schubert, and Bartók. In this program, curated specifically for this performance and to be announced from the stage, Schiff intersperses reflection and insights with shimmering performance.
