András Schiff Presents Young Pianists: When Sir András Schiff expressed his wish to support new talent, we were very happy to join him and to develop the idea into “Building Bridges”: a series featuring three young pianists each season. Sir András chooses them, having heard them somewhere in the world during his masterclasses or auditions. He then works with each of them on defining a finely crafted recital program that he thinks showcases the special talents of each of them and fits the idea of the series.
Now in its fourth season, Building Bridges has proven a great success in Antwerp, Berlin, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Florence, Frankfurt am Main, Milan, Weimar, Zurich and New York. The musicians are conscious of being offered an unusual and intimate situation in which they can perform their own program, far from any competitive pressure. Whenever his schedule allows it, Sir András comes to listen to one of the recitals.
Johann Sebastian Bach – Partita no.3 in a-minor, BWV 827
Ludwig van Beethoven – Sonata in A-major, Op.101
Béla Bartók – Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs, Op.20
Johannes Brahms – 4 Klavierstücke, Op. 119
