SIR ANDRÁS<br />

SCHIFF<br />

<strong>Sir</strong> <strong>András</strong> <strong>Schiff</strong> was born in Budapest,<br />

Hungary in 1953 and started <strong>piano</strong> lessons<br />

at the age of five with Elisabeth Vadász.<br />

Subsequently he continued his studies at<br />

the Franz Liszt Academy with Professor Pál<br />

Kadosa, György Kurtág and Ferenc Rados,<br />

and later in London with George Malcolm.<br />

Recitals and special cycles, including<br />

the major keyboard works of J.S. Bach,<br />

Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert,<br />

Chopin, Schumann and Bartók form an<br />

important part of his activities. Since<br />

2004 he has performed complete cycles<br />

of the 32 Beethoven Sonatas worldwide<br />

and the cycle in the Tonhalle Zurich<br />

was recorded live for ECM Records.<br />

An exclusive ECM recording Artist,<br />

his recordings of works by Schubert,<br />

Schumann, Janáček, Beethoven and<br />

Bach, have been released to the highest<br />

of critical acclaim. The most recent<br />

disc, “Encores after Beethoven” was<br />

released in 2016: a collection of encores<br />

performed after his Beethoven Cycle<br />

programs. His newest recording, to be<br />

released in October, includes sonatas for<br />

4


violin and <strong>piano</strong> by Bach, Busoni, and<br />

Beethoven with violinist Yuuko Shiokawa.<br />

<strong>Sir</strong> <strong>András</strong> has worked with most major<br />

international orchestras and conductors,<br />

but in recent years has performed mainly<br />

as a conductor and soloist. In 1999 he<br />

created his own chamber orchestra, the<br />

Cappella Andrea Barca, which consists of<br />

international soloists, chamber musicians<br />

and friends. In addition to international<br />

tours with this orchestra, he works<br />

with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.<br />

He appears as conductor and soloist<br />

with the New York Philharmonic and<br />

Chicago Symphony this season, in<br />

addition to over a dozen recitals in two<br />

North American visits. His other concert<br />

performances bring him to Europe,<br />

Australia, Japan, China, and South<br />

America. His projects and cycles can be<br />

heard in musical centers around the world.<br />

Since childhood he has enjoyed playing<br />

chamber music and from 1989-1998 was<br />

Artistic Director of the internationally<br />

highly praised “Musiktage Mondsee”<br />

chamber music festival near Salzburg.<br />

In 1995, together with Heinz Holliger, he<br />

founded the “Ittinger Pfingstkonzerte”<br />

in Koartause Ittingen, Switzerland. In<br />

1998 <strong>Sir</strong> <strong>András</strong> started a similar<br />

series, entitled “Hommage to Palladio”<br />

at the Teatro Olimpico in Vizenza. He<br />

has been, Pianist in Residence of the<br />

Berlin Philharmonic, a Perspective<br />

Artist at Carnegie Hall, and Pianist in<br />

Residence of the Kunstfest Weimar.<br />

<strong>Sir</strong> <strong>András</strong> has been awarded<br />

numerous international prizes. In 2006<br />

he became an Honorary Member of the<br />

Beethoven House in Bonn in recognition of<br />

his interpretations of Beethoven’s works;<br />

in 2008 he was awarded the Wigmore<br />

Hall Medal in appreciation of 30 years of<br />

music-making at Wigmore Hall; ; in 2009<br />

he was made a Special Supernumerary<br />

Fellow of Balliol College (Oxford, UK);<br />

in 2011he received the Schumann<br />

Prize, the Golden Mozart-Medaille by<br />

the International Stiftung Mozarteum,<br />

the Order pour le merite for Sciences<br />

and Arts, the Grosse Verdienstkreuz mit<br />

Stern der Bunderepublik Deutschland,<br />

and was made a Member of the Honour<br />

of Vienna Konzerthaus; he was given<br />

the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gold<br />

Medal; in July 2014 he was awarded an<br />

Honorary Degree of Doctor of Music<br />

honoris causa by the University of Leeds.<br />

In the spring of 2011, <strong>Sir</strong> <strong>András</strong><br />

attracted attention because of his<br />

opposition to the alarming political<br />

development in Hungary and in view<br />

of the ensuing attacks on him from<br />

some Hungarian Nationalists, decided<br />

not to perform again in his home country.<br />

In June 2014 he was bestowed a<br />

Knighthood for services to Music in<br />

the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.<br />

<strong>Sir</strong> <strong>András</strong> <strong>Schiff</strong>’s book, “Musik kommt<br />

aus der Stille”, essays and conversations<br />

with Martin Meyer, was published in<br />

March 2017 by Bärenreiter and Henschel.<br />

Program Notes<br />

Mendelssohn’s Fantasy in<br />

F-sharp minor belongs to<br />

the fairly extensive category<br />

of 19th-century German<br />

works inspired by Scotland, which<br />

was, in German eyes, a distant locale<br />

of exotic romance. Unlike Schumann,<br />

who turned 20 Robert Burns poems into<br />

songs, or Max Bruch, whose best-known<br />

composition is the Scottish Fantasy,<br />

Mendelssohn actually visited Scotland,<br />

although the effect of that visit on the<br />

F minor Fantasy is hard to gauge. He<br />

wrote the first version, titled Sonata<br />

Écossaise (Scottish sonata), in 1828, a<br />

year before his first visit to England and<br />

Scotland. His sister Fanny wrote that<br />

she liked its “Scottish” features. Those<br />

bits of Scottishness, in such details as<br />

chord voicings, were obvious to someone<br />

raised in the German style of the day who<br />

would immediately notice any deviation<br />

from that style, but they are lost on<br />

modern listeners, much as the difference<br />

between a Berlin accent and a Bavarian<br />

one is lost on non-German-speakers.<br />

The Sonata Écossaise has not<br />

survived, so there is no way to know<br />

what changes Mendelssohn made to it,<br />

but he published the finished version<br />

with the “Fantasy” title in 1834, meaning<br />

that he no longer called it Scottish and<br />

6


no longer called it a sonata. He may have<br />

thought that its form—a slow movement<br />

followed by a moderately fast movement<br />

followed by a very fast movement—too<br />

unorthodox to be a sonata, although<br />

Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata does<br />

pretty much the same thing. The<br />

Fantasy’s outer movements are more<br />

overtly virtuosic, and the finale more<br />

relentlessly driving, than we expect of<br />

Mendelssohn. The middle movement<br />

is in the ABA form of a scherzo.<br />

Ludwig<br />

van Beethoven<br />

Beethoven’s opus 78 sonata<br />

is not among his best-known<br />

sonatas, but Beethoven himself<br />

was very fond of it. Written<br />

in October 1809, five years after his<br />

previous sonata, the Apassionata, it is<br />

as good-humored as its predecessor<br />

is stormy. He dedicated it to Countess<br />

Therese von Brunswick, a Hungarian<br />

aristocrat who has been posited as one<br />

of Beethoven’s love interests on the<br />

basis of fanciful readings of the evidence.<br />

Therese seems to have decided in her<br />

middle teens that she would not marry,<br />

and she never did. In her middle age,<br />

after Beethoven’s death, she became a<br />

pioneer in early childhood development<br />

and feminist causes. She founded the first<br />

pre-schools in Hungary and the Women’s<br />

Association in Budapest, and worked<br />

for women’s education and equality.<br />

The opus 78 sonata is a happy work,<br />

if an unorthodox one. Its key of F-sharp<br />

major—in which every note of the scale<br />

except B is played as a sharp—is very<br />

unusual. It is Beethoven’s only work<br />

in that key, which is one more than<br />

Mozart wrote. The first movement, after<br />

a one-phrase slow introduction, features<br />

attractive melody melding with flowing<br />

runs. Unusually, Beethoven instructs the<br />

player to repeat the second part of<br />

the movement – the part of a sonata<br />

movement we now call the development<br />

and recapitulation. While such a repeat<br />

was normal practice in the 18th century,<br />

the mostly disappeared in the 19th century<br />

because a sonata movement introduced<br />

uncertainty or conflict or tension in its<br />

first half, and resolved it in the second,<br />

so repeating the second half of the<br />

movement was like hearing the end of a<br />

mystery story twice. Beethoven may have<br />

been recognizing that this movement,<br />

7


with a short development section,<br />

didn’t have much mystery to resolve.<br />

The second, and last, movement is<br />

Beethoven the comedian, writing the sort<br />

of movement that led critics to complain<br />

about his capriciousness and speculate<br />

about his sanity. It starts in the “wrong”<br />

key, with a sort of G-sharp chord, the<br />

dominant of C-sharp major, which is in<br />

turn the dominant of the home key of<br />

F-sharp), and takes several phrases and<br />

progressions before arriving, more or<br />

less, in the “right” key. It sets off a brief but<br />

brilliant spate of revelry, with the left hand<br />

chasing the right all over the keyboard.<br />

Brahms left off writing solo <strong>piano</strong><br />

music in the 1860s, and when<br />

he started again in 1878, his<br />

approach had changed. The<br />

<strong>piano</strong> music of his youth was dominated<br />

large-scale works of great scope and<br />

ambition; Schumann called the first two<br />

<strong>piano</strong> sonatas “veiled symphonies” after<br />

the 20-year-old Brahms played them for<br />

him. But he returned to solo <strong>piano</strong> music<br />

after a dozen-year hiatus in which he<br />

produced his first two symphonies, the<br />

Violin Concerto, the German Requiem,<br />

the Alto Rhapsody and Song of Destiny,<br />

so he may have decided to leave large<br />

statements to large forces. Piano music<br />

may also have become less important to<br />

him. Young Brahms had made his living<br />

as a pianist, but middle-aged Brahms<br />

was successful enough as a composer<br />

that he could afford not to practice<br />

the <strong>piano</strong> much, and was becoming,<br />

in his own eyes, a second-rate player.<br />

For whatever reasons, his solo <strong>piano</strong><br />

Johannes Brahms<br />

output in the last two decades of his life<br />

consisted of 30 (mostly short) pieces,<br />

half of which are on this program.<br />

Brahms titled all the 15 pieces of<br />

opus 76 and 116 either “Capriccio,” a<br />

word that had lost any real meaning by<br />

1878, or “Intermezzo,” which had even less<br />

real meaning. Taken together, they give<br />

the general impression that a capriccio<br />

should be faster than an intermezzo,<br />

except when it shouldn’t. Each opus<br />

can be played as a set, as they are in<br />

this concert, but also find their way onto<br />

concert programs as individual pieces.<br />

When opus 76 is presented in<br />

sequence, the drama of the opening<br />

F-sharp minor Capriccio is followed by<br />

8


the slightly clunky (and<br />

slightly Hungarian) humor<br />

of the second Capriccio,<br />

in B minor. The first<br />

Intermezzo, in A, contrasts<br />

two strains that create<br />

differing sonorities, one<br />

of them delicate and<br />

bell-like, the other lush.<br />

The fourth piece (the<br />

second<br />

Intermezzo)<br />

<strong>presents</strong> an unsettling<br />

casualness in its tonal<br />

meanderings. Although it<br />

hints at the home key of B<br />

flat and alights briefly in G<br />

minor, the relative minor, it doesn’t actual<br />

come to rest in B flat until the very end.<br />

The fifth piece is unsettling in a<br />

different way.<br />

There’s no question,<br />

despite all its chromatic slithering,<br />

that the key is C-sharp minor. But<br />

the rhythm is a persistent threeagainst<br />

two, as it is in the Intermezzo<br />

in A that follows. Brahms’ fondness for<br />

chromaticism and cross-rhythms was<br />

the sort of thing that led a Boston critic,<br />

panning his First Symphony in 1878, to<br />

complain that he was “a modern of the<br />

moderns” whose music “is a remarkable<br />

expression of the inner life of this<br />

anxious, introverted, over-earnest age.”<br />

The Intermezzo in A minor, with<br />

its hymn-like main theme, is more<br />

grounded and less anxious, introverted<br />

and over-earnest. The rippling, shifting<br />

arpeggios of the final Capriccio in C<br />

have more than a hint of impressionism.<br />

The opus 116 Intermezzos and<br />

Capriccios date from about 1892, when<br />

Pianist Clara<br />

Schumann, a<br />

longtime friend and<br />

confidante, who<br />

knew, and played,<br />

Brahms’ music<br />

better than anyone,<br />

described opus<br />

116 as “dreamy”<br />

intermezzos<br />

interspersed with<br />

“deeply passionate”<br />

capriccios, and it<br />

would be hard to<br />

improve on that<br />

description.<br />

Brahms was emerging<br />

from a short period of<br />

artistic depression, a<br />

feeling that he was played<br />

out and approaching<br />

his end in his late 50’s.<br />

His chamber music with<br />

clarinet, and a new crop of<br />

<strong>piano</strong> miniatures, signaled<br />

a revival of his spirits.<br />

Opus 116 originally<br />

consisted of only five<br />

pieces, and it was only<br />

after the publisher<br />

had them in hand that<br />

Brahms decided to<br />

add two more, perhaps an indication<br />

that he was thinking of them as an<br />

integrated set rather than a collection.<br />

Pianist Clara Schumann, a longtime<br />

friend and confidante, who knew, and<br />

played, Brahms’ music better than<br />

anyone, described opus 116 as “dreamy”<br />

intermezzos interspersed with “deeply<br />

passionate” capriccios, and it would be<br />

hard to improve on that description.<br />

When the pieces are played in sequence,<br />

the powerful capriccios at the beginning,<br />

middle and end are a sort of real-world<br />

anchor for the otherworldly intermezzos.<br />

The dreamiest of them is the fourth<br />

piece, an intermezzo in E in which Brahms<br />

exploits a soft, sustained resonance in<br />

the instrument. It forms a trilogy with<br />

an E minor Intermezzo, marked “with<br />

grace and the most intimate feeling”<br />

(an unusually specific direction for a<br />

composer notoriously uninformative<br />

in his performance directions), and an<br />

E major Intermezzo marked “tenderly.”<br />

9


In contrast to the other works on the<br />

program, we know almost nothing about<br />

the origin of Bach’s six English Suites.<br />

They were not published in his lifetime<br />

and there is no manuscript in his hand.<br />

A half dozen manuscripts contemporary<br />

with Bach indicate that the suites were<br />

completed between 17<strong>12</strong> and 1722. It<br />

isn’t clear why they are called “English,”<br />

and there is no evidence that Bach<br />

himself ever described them as English.<br />

His first biographer wrote in 1802 that<br />

they had been written for, or dedicated<br />

(or sold) to an unidentified Englishman<br />

of rank. A manuscript copy of the first<br />

suite once owned by Bach’s youngest<br />

son Johann Christian, who came to<br />

London <strong>12</strong> years after his father died and<br />

spent the last 20 years of his life there,<br />

says it was “done for the English,” which<br />

might mean that Bach composed them<br />

for a prominent English family. Another<br />

explanation is the presence of expansive<br />

preludes, a feature common in English<br />

music and rare in Bach’s other works.<br />

The sixth suite’s epic prelude, the<br />

longest movement in the English Suites,<br />

is in the form of a prelude and fugue.<br />

The other movements are dance pieces,<br />

or at least forms that had been dances.<br />

A late Baroque composer would not<br />

have expected anyone to actually dance<br />

to his suites: they were art music, and<br />

the sequence of dance forms was a<br />

shorthand way of indicating rhythm,<br />

tempo and mood to players and listeners.<br />

Allemande is a French word meaning<br />

“German,” and eighteenth-century<br />

writers noted that it was a dance of some<br />

gravity, befitting the grave character<br />

of German people. The basic steps<br />

consisted mostly of walking, and though<br />

the allemande’s heyday was around the<br />

turn of the seventeenth century and<br />

it was rarely danced in Bach’s time,<br />

it still retained its walking character.<br />

The courante — French for “running”<br />

— was, in other hands, a quick dance<br />

in a swinging triple meter. Bach<br />

preferred a more complex type of<br />

courante in which the basic pulse is<br />

slower, there are four notes to the<br />

beat, and the rhythm is less obvious.<br />

The sarabande as Bach was slow and<br />

serious in triple time, with an accented<br />

second beat. In the sixth suite it is<br />

followed by a double, an ornamented<br />

repetition with faster note values.<br />

The gavotte is a jaunty dance in duple<br />

meter. Here, Gavotte I and its repetition<br />

sandwich a chimey Gavotte II in D major<br />

(the only extended major-key sojourn in<br />

the suite) in which the left hand never<br />

drops below a droning D above middle C.<br />

The concluding gigue (jig in English)<br />

is both a lively dance in compound triple<br />

meter (nine short notes in groups of<br />

three) and another three-voice fugue.<br />

Presenting the world’s finest classical artists since 1919<br />

“I think too often<br />

people think of the<br />

arts as decoration to<br />

the experiences of life,<br />

sort of a frosting on<br />

the cake. But to me,<br />

the arts are essential<br />

to understanding the<br />

problems of life, and to<br />

helping us get through<br />

the experiences of life<br />

with intelligent understanding<br />

and grace.”<br />
