András Schiff plays Bach, Mozart and Haydn
In the words of one critic, András Schiff is “a magician of sound who breathes life into works, and who upholds the almost forgotten ideal of piano playing”. In this recording from 2010, he takes on the roles of both soloist and conductor in two austerely bleak D minor piano concertos by Bach and Mozart plus Joseph Haydn’s Military Symphony, a work which also takes its listeners close to the abyss with idyllic scenes which time and again are interrupted by the horrors of war.
