Biography
András Schiff

Sir András Schiff is world-renowned as pianist, conductor, pedagogue, and lecturer. He brings masterful and intellectual insights to his performances which have inspired audiences and critics alike. In the 2022–23 season he serves as The Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence at the New York Philharmonic, conducting and playing a program of works by Haydn, Schubert, and Mozart; performing as soloist in Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 3; and appearing in solo recital and a chamber music concert with musicians from the Orchestra.

Born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1953, Sir András studied piano at the Liszt Ferenc Academy with Pal Kadosa, György Kurtág, and Ference Rados, and in London with George Malcome. He has performed cycles of complete Beethoven sonatas, and projects including the complete works of J.S. Bach, Haydn, Schubert, and Bartók constitute an important part of his work. Having collaborated with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, he now focuses primarily on solo recital, play-conducting appearances, and exclusive conducting projects. This season in North America he performs Mozart programs in Quebec, Carnegie Hall, and Chicago’s Symphony Hall.

Vicenza is home to Cappella Andrea Barca — his own chamber orchestra consisting of international soloists, chamber musicians, and friends —  founded in 1999. Together they have appeared at Carnegie Hall, Lucerne Festival, and Salzburg Mozartwoche; forthcoming projects include a tour of Asia and a cycle of Bach’s keyboard concertos in Europe. He currently curates a festival in Vicenza’s Teatro Olimpico.

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

With a prolific discography, he established an exclusive relationship with Producer Manfred Eicher and ECM New Series in 1997. Highlights have included the complete Beethoven piano sonatas, recorded live from Zurich, and solo recitals featuring Schubert, Schumann, and Janáček as well as J.S. Bach’s Partitas, Goldberg Variations, and Well-Tempered Clavier. His most recent discs are the two Brahms piano concertos with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, performed on period instruments, released in June 2021.

Sir András Schiff’s many honors include the International Mozarteum Foundation’s Golden Medal (2012), Germany’s Great Cross of Merit with Star (2012), Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gold Medal (2013), a knighthood for services to music (2014), and a doctorate from the Royal College of Music (2018). He was awarded the Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance in 2021 from The Henry and Leigh Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University.
