Sir András Schiff, Piano

Sir András Schiff by Nadia F. Romanini
The Beethoven piano sonatas on this program are marvels of concision. Nos. 24 and 25, written during Austria’s struggles with Napoleon, are two-movement, melodically rich gems that pulse with energy. From the same period comes “Les adieux,” a depiction of the sorrow of Beethoven’s patron fleeing Vienna and their eventual joy in reuniting. A pair of late sonatas—among the crown jewels of Beethoven’s career—round out this program performed by Sir András Schiff, a pianist revered for his “uncanny combination of elegance and intensity” (The New York Times).
