Lyrecloseup

András Schiff last performed the complete Beethoven piano sonatas at Wigmore Hall from 2004–6 to overwhelming critical acclaim, with the Guardian’s editor Alan Rusbridger describing one particular performance as ‘a riveting mixture of erudition, analysis, passion, wit and memory’.

On the day before each of the eight recitals in the series, the world-renowned pianist, pedagogue and lecturer gave a lecture-recital in which he explored the works to be performed. Deeply engaging and insightful, these thought-provoking lecture-recitals, recorded live at the Hall, are now available below to hear as eight lecture-recitals.”

    I’ve only heard the lecture on the “Moonlight” sonata so far, but I was greatly impressed by the depth of knowledge and understanding Schiff displays. Other renditions of this sonata seem flat and uninteresting to me now. Looking forward to hearing more of his talks.

  2. Glad you like them Elene- I’m working through them myself. Did you mean the fortepiano recordings?
