Other information of interest

Born in Budapest in 1953, Sir András Schiff studied piano at the Liszt Academy with György Kurtág and in London with George Malcolm. After having collaborated with the most important orchestras and conductors in the world, today he mainly dedicates himself to solo recitals, theater direction and orchestra conducting.

Since 2004 Sir András has performed the complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas in over twenty cities, including Zurich, where the cycle was recorded live for ECM. Other acclaimed recordings for the label include solo recitals by Schubert, Schumann and Janáček, as well as JS Bach's Partitas, Goldberg Variations and Well-Tempered Clavicle.

In recent years his Bach has become an annual BBC Proms fixture. He performs regularly at the Verbier, Salzburg and Baden-Baden Festivals, at the Wigmore Hall, the Musikverein and the Philharmonie de Paris, tours North America and Asia and Italy, where he is based.

In Vicenza Schiff curates a festival at the Teatro Olimpico, and in the same city there is also the Cappella Andrea Barca, a chamber orchestra he founded in 1999 (the name alludes to an elusive Renaissance composer, but is actually the Italian translation of the his name). Together they have performed at Carnegie Hall, the Lucerne Festival and the Salzburg Mozartwoche; upcoming projects include a tour of Asia and a cycle of Bach keyboard concertos in Europe.

Sir András also enjoys a close relationship with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Budapest Festival Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Age Enlightenment. In 2018, he accepted the role of Associate Artist with the OAE, complementing his interest in performing on period keyboard instruments.

Schiff actively supports new talent, in particular through the "Building Bridges" project, which offers promising young artists important opportunities to perform. He also teaches at the Barenboim-Said and Kronberg Academies and frequently gives lectures and masterclasses. In 2017 his book “Music Comes from Silence” was published by Bärenreiter and Henschel, essays and conversations with Martin Meyer.

Sir András Schiff's many honors include the Gold Medal of the International Mozarteum Foundation (2012), the German Grand Cross of Merit with Star (2012), the Gold Medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society (2013), the Knighthood for the Services to Music (2014), the Doctorate of the Royal College of Music (2018) and the Bach Medal of the City of Leipzig (2022).
