To read

The Hungarian pianist András Schiff is one of the outstanding musicians of his generation, and rightly so!  He went to a "good school" and while studying piano, his teacher, the great Hungarian composer György Kurtág, forced him to "sing the music".  It is to this method that he owes his greatest progress, he maintains to this day - it is therefore not surprising that he is, among other things, a remarkable accompanist of lieder.  He has devoted his life to the 'great classics' and has a special relationship, both at the piano and at the music stand, with the works and worlds of Bach, Beethoven, Schumann and Schubert.  After Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and Haydn's Symphony No. 103, which takes its subtitle from its impressive and theatrical drum roll introduction, it is time for the most famous piano concerto in the history of the genre, the Emperor Concerto No. 5.  A programme that combines the elegant classicism of Haydn with the power of Beethoven.
