About the Artist

Back in 2016, Alexander Melnikov came to PUC and played a 3-hour program of the complete preludes and fugues of Shostakovich that left the audience with jaws squarely on the floor (his recording of the works was named one of the “50 Greatest Recordings of All Time” by BBC Music Magazine). Now he returns with good friend and fellow keyboard maven Andreas Staier to perform a gloriously intimate program of Schubert’s four-hand piano music. It’s the concert equivalent of gourmet-quality comfort food, and you’ll want to be there, plate in hand.
