A ferocious intellect, capacious memory and impressive stamina enable Sir András Schiff to give sublime interpretations of complex music which draw the audiences into his special, distinct soundworld. With a reputation for uncompromising views on performance and interpretation, a commanding stage presence and a warm sense of humour, the Maestro was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list of 2014, for services to music. He is the recipient of the 2021 Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance.

An epitome of excellence and one of the greatest pianists of our time, Sir András Schiff responded to the COVID-19 situation in his characteristic style – by introducing a new form of programme announcement: directly on the concert stage. Believing this kind of music-making to be much more genuine, he reveals to the audience his choice of programme tailored to a specific concert venue and explains the connection between the selected works – we can thus anticipate an exciting concert experience!


He marries a singing tone and full palette of pianistic colours with a clarity of texture and structure.

Highly considered, almost reverential, every note, every nuance, every tempo, every dynamic gradation was meticulously thought through. His calmness on stage allows the music to speak without the distraction of gestures.

With Schiff there are no smudges and certainly no scurrying or scampering. And his pedalling is one of the best in the business.
