Cristian Sandrin piano

Kirckman Society Concert Series


  • Cristian Sandrin piano

Cristian Sandrin invites you on a kaleidoscopic musical journey of German Romantic piano repertoire ranging from Brahms’s autumnal and intimate Intermezzi Op. 117 and Beethoven’s landmark ‘Tempest’ Sonata to Schumann’s Kreisleriana, the marvellous compendium of phantasien für Klavier inspired by E. T. A. Hoffmann’s novel of the same name and a tribute to its central character (Kreisler, the witty, wild, eccentric conductor). Sandrin concludes the recital with Schumann’s Gesänge der Frühe, among the composer’s last compositions, which speaks of his inexhaustible visionary creative powers.
