Christian Zacharias Lecture-Recital: Why does Schubert sound like Schubert?

This event was streamed live from Wigmore Hall on Friday 18 January 2019

‘A pianist of ideas’, as The New Yorker has called him, leading Schubert interpreter Christian Zacharias delves into the great composer’s unique melodic, harmonic and thematic flourishes. Through close examination of these musical hallmarks and idiosyncrasies, he takes us on a journey to the very essence of Schubert’s style.
