Francesco Piemontesi explores Schubert with Michael White

Ahead of his Schubert series in 2019/20, pianist Francesco Piemontesi talks to music critic Michael White at Wigmore Hall.

The pair talk about whether Piemontesi, a pianist with a background of multiple nationalities and cultures, considers himself a 'citizen of the world', how he couldn't ever confine himself to any one area of piano music, and the excitement of programming the Ascona Music Festival. With the first concert of his series in November, Piemontesi discusses his programme choices and the parallels he feels between Schubert's life and final three piano sonatas.
