JOSEPH HAYDN
Sonate pour piano n°62 en mi bémol majeur, Hob. XVI/52

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Sonate pour piano n°32 en ut mineur, op. 111

In 2014, the Verbier Festival featured the talented Sir András Schiff, one of the most renowned living interpreters of Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, and a well-known conductor as well. He has appeared with numerous leading orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

The award-winning artist was honored with two Grammy Awards—first in 1990 for Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (without orchestra) for his English Suites by Bach, and later for a Schubert recital in collaboration with Peter Schreier—the 1991 Bartók Prize, and the 1994 Claudio Arrau Memorial Medal. He was appointed a Knight Bachelor through the Queen’s Birthday Honors list of 2014, in recognition of his services to music.

Here Sir András Schiff performs Joseph Haydn’s Piano Sonata No. 62 in E-flat Major and Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111.
