About This Performance

Sir András Schiff “is one of the most penetratingly serious masters of the keyboard before the public today” (Boston Globe). This exquisitely sensitive master has earned first prizes at the Tchaikovsky and Leeds competitions, won two Grammy awards, and played in nearly every major concert hall in the world. In his PCMS recital program, Schiff offers a deep dive into the core German/Austrian tradition and writes: “Together for these two hours, we can somehow change the world into a better place.”
