Andras Schiff: Beethoven Piano SonatasWhen Andras Schiff first performed the complete Beethoven piano sonatas chronologically at Wigmore Hall, back in 2006, The Independent compared the achievement to "conquering a pianistic Everest". The Hungarian-born British master pianist and conductor is one of the most renowned interpreters of Bach, Mozart, Schubert and Schumann in the world. But it is Schiff's live performances of Beethoven's 32 sonatas that is destined to enter British music history as a landmark series. The Guardian's editor, Alan Rusbridger, described one performance in 2006 as "a riviting mixture of erudition, analysis, passion, wit and memory," while The Sunday Times claims that tickets for this latest series (which starts with these three concerts in November 2012 and continues over the coming year) "will be in the gold-dust category". In fact, while tickets remain for the opening concert on Monday 19 November (four sonatas), there are returns only for the concerts on Friday 23 November (six sonatas) and Monday 26 November (seven sonatas).

 

About Wigmore Hall

Built by the Bechstein piano company in 1901, this grandiose concert hall is regarded by many as London's best venue for chamber and solo performances. Wigmore Hall's renaissance materials - alabaster and marble - and the rectangular shape have given it a clear, clean acoustic that is a world away from the boom of the great domed concert halls.
