about the matinee


For András Schiff, Mozart was ‘perhaps the greatest genius of all time, a heaven-sent gift to humankind’ — and no further introduction is needed regarding his decades of engagement with Mozart’s oeuvre. Few musicians living today bring such authority to this body of work. Committing to a detailed programme a year before the concert, however, is a practice that András Schiff finds too restrictive: ‘You wouldn’t decide that far ahead what to have for dinner either…!’ Lately he has opted for a more spontaneous approach, and will announce his programme from the stage.
