Sir András Schiff

October 23, 2017 7:30 pm. Acclaimed for his "astounding colours" (The Guardian), pianist Sir András Schiff has stood atop the world of piano for decades as one of the greats of recent years. The conductor, lecturer, and pianist performs an elaborate and reflective program that features Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms's enchanting 7 Fantasien, Op. 116, and 8 Klavierstücke, Op. 76. Also on offer is Mendelssohn's fiery "Sonate écossaise," considered one of his finest pieces for piano. "To attend an András Schiff recital is to enter a secular temple to music." – Washington PostProceeds from this concert benefit Jewish Family Services of Ottawa and Chamberfest Community Engagement and Education.. 355 Cooper StreetOttawa, ON K2P 0G8..
