Andras Schiff plays Schubert at Wigmore Hall

Renowned pianist Andras Schiff plays Schubert Sonatas in A minor, D845, in D, D850, and the Fantasy Sonata in G, D894, live at Wigmore Hall.

Andras Schiff, one of the world's most renowned musicians, plays a sequence of three late, great Schubert piano Sonatas which broke new expressive and emotional ground in their shift away from the Beethovenian drama towards a more expansive and lyrical model.

Sarah Walker presents, live from Wigmore Hall.
