András Schiff All-Beethoven Solo Recital at Carnegie Hall
Thursday April 2, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Sir András Schiff, Piano
Immerse yourself in Beethoven’s piano sonatas where tragedy and joy live side-by-side, tenderness gives way to rough humor, and virtuosity reigns supreme. Hear a funeral march that inspired Chopin, daring flights of improvisatory fancy, a gentle melody that conjures the image of the moon reflected on a lake, and more. Sir András Schiff, “a master of nuance and musical wisdom” (The Seattle Times), is one of the greatest interpreters and your guide for this journey through four remarkable sonatas.
