Apr. 8-18. Prerecorded performance from the Church of St. Peter in Zurich, Switzerland by one of the best pianists of his generation, Schiff is known for a polished style that combines a joyous sparkle with an intuitive discernment that teases out musical details other pianists miss. "Among current piano titans, Sir András Schiff is the Zen master," says a San Jose Mercury News review. "He is both utterly relaxed and absolutely awake … Listening to Schiff play is like looking into a running stream and seeing all the colorful, round pebbles beneath the water." Program: Bach's Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue and Capriccio on the Departure of a Beloved Brother, Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 17 in D minor and No. 26 in E-flat major, and Schumann's Arabeske in C major.
