Pi­anist An­drás Schiff

Pasatiempo - - ACTS RANDOM -

The greatly re­spected pi­anist An­drás Schiff ar­rives (un­der the spon­sor­ship of Per­for­mance Santa Fe) with a pro­gram of sonatas by the four most solid pil­lars of Vi­en­nese mu­sic in the decades sur­round­ing the turn into the 19th cen­tury. The ear­li­est is from 1788: Mozart’s so-called Sonata facile in C ma­jor (K. 545), a stan­dard for pi­ano stu­dents that he de­scribed as “a lit­tle pi­ano sonata for begin­ners.” Haydn is rep­re­sented by his C-ma­jor Sonata (Hob. XVI:50), an ex­pan­sive work pro­duced dur­ing his sec­ond, vale­dic­tory Lon­don res­i­dency, in 1794-1795. From Beethoven comes the E-ma­jor Sonata (Op. 109), his third from last, from 1820; and from Schu­bert we hear the C-mi­nor Sonata (D. 958), one of three he wrote in Septem­ber 1828, two months be­fore his death. The recital takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Tues­day, Feb. 24, at the Lensic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). Tick­ets ($27 to $100, with dis­counts avail­able) can be pur­chased by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.com. — J.M.K.
