Sir András Schiff, Piano

Thursday, March 7, 2019 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Sir Andras Schiff by Peter Fischli / LUCERNE FESTIVAL
Sir András Schiff performs music by Schumann and Janáček, two composers with whom he is closely associated. Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze is a brilliantly characterized set of dances, while his Piano Sonata No. 1 juxtaposes the turbulent and tender. Janáček’s darkly shaded On the Overgrown Path—its name comes from a Moravian wedding song—is based on his deeply personal reminiscences. A melancholy mood also colors Janáček’s Sonata, an intensely emotional two-movement work of great power and beauty.
