Sir András Schiff in Recital

After his sold-out debut last season, Saffron Hall is thrilled to welcome back Sir András Schiff. He performs a varied and rich programme exploring the expressive possibilities of the keyboard to the utmost, from intricate polyphony, via song-like lyricism, to percussive brutality. Bach’s early Capriccio, written as a farewell gift, is a delightful suite which includes a playful fugue based on the blast of a coachman’s horn. Schumann’s Fantasie, a substantial three-movement outpouring of love and anguish, also reflects a parting – in this case between the composer and his beloved Clara. In between these works, Schiff offers Janáček’s impressionistic cycle In the Mists, and spiky rhythmic brilliance from Bartók.

The free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will be in operation for this concert. For more details click here
