ABOUT ANDRÁS SCHIFF

“Schiff is a magnificent pianist and these performances were profoundly illuminating”
— LA Times

Revolving around Johannes Brahms, Sir András Schiff contrasts his last three piano cycles, composed between 1892-1893, with piano works by Schumann, Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven - all of whom had a lasting influence on Brahms' works.
