Tune In: Sir András Schiff in a Live Audio Broadcast
Tune in and join us tonight, Tuesday, March 10—live from Carnegie Hall—as pianist Sir András Schiff explores the fascinating final sonatas of four great masters.
Tonight at 8 PM (EDT): Listen and join the conversation
Haydn’s C-Major Sonata, an extraordinarily playful work written during his second visit to London, takes advantage of the innovations that English piano makers achieved by extending the range of the instrument. Mozart’s C-Major Sonata, featuring the delicate “In an 18th-Century Drawing Room” theme, is an enduring favorite. But Beethoven slammed the door on the drawing room with late piano sonatas like his daring Sonata No. 30, while Schubert’s C-Minor Sonata is one of his most dramatic works.
The Carnegie Hall Live series is produced by WQXR and Carnegie Hall in collaboration with the WFMT Radio Network.
