"He is one of the most penetratingly serious masters of the keyboard before the public today. Full stop." — Boston Globe
Born in Budapest, Sir András Schiff studied with Pal Kadosa, György Kurtág, and Ference Rados, and in London with George Malcome. Recitals and special cycles, including the complete works of Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, and Bartók, constitute an important part of Schiff’s work. He is the founder of chamber orchestra Cappella Andrea Barca, and he works closely with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. In 2018 he accepted the role of Associated Artist with the OAE, and his many honors include the International Mozarteum Foundation’s Golden Medal (2012), Germany’s Great Cross of Merit with Star (2012), a Knighthood for Services to Music (2014), and a Doctorate from the Royal College of Music (2018).
