Andras Schiff plays Schubert at Wigmore Hall

Renowned pianist Andras Schiff plays Schubert's Sonatas in A minor, D845, and in D, D850, and the Fantasy Sonata in G, D894, 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.

Another chance to hear this concert recorded live at Wigmore Hall in October 2018, presented by Sarah Walker.
