Sir András Schiff piano

Bach, Bartók, Janáček and Schumann


  • Sir András Schiff piano

Sir András Schiff offers a programme of true character pieces, works nourished by their association with individuals close to their composers, events or particular performers.

In the Mists, for instance, was influenced by memories of Janáček’s deceased daughter, while Bartók wrote his 6 Dances in Bulgarian Rhythm for the English pianist Harriet Cohen.
