The New York Times writes, “There is nothing more reliable in the world of classical music today than pianist András Schiff playing Bach.” Over a four-decade career, Schiff has attained legendary status as one of the instrument’s all-time greats, amassing Grammys, Gramophones, and even Knighthood for his contribution to the arts. His interpretations of Bach’s keyboard music are perhaps the most influential since Glenn Gould, publicly denouncing use of the sustain pedal in favor of lean, clear counterpoint. But his approach and sound vary widely from composer to composer, era to era—he is one of a few living pianists whose musicianship genuinely seems to know no bounds, and the influence of his work on other artists can be heard in concert halls, universities, and recording studios around the world. He visits Richardson Auditorium with a program that is sure to shed new light on timeless classics.
- Conductor Iván Fischer
“He’s a very rare example of a musician who sets moral standards for the world.”
