Sir András Schiff piano

Bach, Bartók, Janáček and Schumann


  • Sir András Schiff piano

Bach’s Sinfonias, known to generations of piano students as Three-part Inventions, provide the powerful platform for a programme of works bristling with rhythmic energy and songful melody. Janáček’s Sonata ‘From the Street’ captures the outrage, defiance and despair provoked by the death in 1905 of a worker bayoneted by troops during a protest in favour of a Czech university in Brno.
