Sir András Schiff

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Sir András Schiff performs final piano sonatas by four great composers of the Austro-German tradition. The Classical era is represented by Haydn’s charming Sonata in D Major and Mozart’s B-flat–Major Sonata. Beethoven bridges the Classical and the Romantic eras and, in his profound Sonata No. 31, explores a new world of keyboard invention. Schubert’s Sonata in A Major is bold and lyrical with an especially daring Andantino of startling key changes.
