At the 2019 Verbier Festival András Schiff devoted an entire recital to Bach. His 2020 recital comprises three of Schubert’s piano sonatas. When Schiff played a similar programme at Carnegie Hall in 2017, the New York Times wrote: “It seemed … that Mr. Schiff had almost come to inhabit Schubert the way he long ago inhabited Bach. He played with a proprietary, improvisatory air, as though he were making up the music on the spot … He subtly altered the many repeated phrases, in timing, touch or mood … it seemed, the music was in constant variation, alive with new meanings.”
