Sir András Schiff in Recital

After his sold-out debut last season, Saffron Hall is thrilled to welcome back Sir András Schiff. He performs a varied and rich programme exploring the expressive possibilities of the keyboard to the utmost, from intricate polyphony, via song-like lyricism, to percussive brutality. Bach’s earlyCapriccio, written as a farewell gift, is a delightful suite which includes a playful fugue based on the blast of a coachman’s horn. Schumann’sFantasie, a substantial three-movement outpouring of love and anguish, also reflects a parting – in this case between the composer and his beloved Clara. In between these works, Schiff offers Janáček’s impressionistic cycle In the Mists, and spiky rhythmic brilliance from Bartók.
