Notes and Editorial Reviews



Available individually here, this release is also included as part of the 11-CD set, Beethoven: The Piano Sonatas / Schiff. - ArkivMusic

Between March 2004 and May 2006 András Schiff performed the complete cycle of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas at the Tonhalle, Zürich, recorded and released by ECM New Series. This collection presents the encores from these concerts. What does one play after Beethoven sonatas? András Schiff: “For me it's essential not to seek entertainment but rather to look for pieces that are closely related to the
Read more previously heard sonatas.” The pianist explores links to Schubert, Mozart, Haydn and Bach. For all the interconnecting strands of musical history, András Schiff’s selection of encores also adds up to a thoroughly enjoyable ‘recital’ disc in its own right.

-----

REVIEW:

If you believe that encores often bring out the best in musicians, you will be delighted with Schiff’s offerings.
