ANDRÁS SCHIFF CD REVIEWS New ECM recording - Goldberg Variations The Times - 17 October 2003 "Listen to the pianist Andras Schiff: 'A recording is a document of one's view of a piece of music at a given time. It's not a monument for eternity'. He is right, though if a recording and its interpretation reaches a sufficient leve of truth and beauty it can seem a monument to many - especially to those who promote a company's back catalogue. Consider Bach's Goldberg Variations, one of the glories of Western art, written originally for the two-manual harpsichord. Schiff's Decca account, recorded at Kingsway Hall in 1982, has also become a boon companion to many people for its clarity, subtlety, good sense, and singing lines. Since no great artist stands still, Schiff has now issued another performace (ECM New Series ECM1825). The results may not appear hugely different, apart perhaps from ever-increasing crispness of his fingerwork; listen to the handcrossing whirlwind of the 14th variation and marvel. Come closer, though. This is a recording from a concert in Basel, October 2001, and the shapes, the contrasts, and silences Schiff brings to the aria and its 30 variations very much suggest a living organism. We don't hear Schiff's breathing, but we certainly hear Bach's as he spins the theme into brilliant cascades, gentle musings, or intricate canons. What Landowska called the "black pearl" variation, the sombre 25th, provides the emotional climax, as it should; but the set is still governed by Schiff's light wit,his delight in Bach's genius, and the joy of a pleasure being shared."

Interview with
Pianist Andras Schiff "The beauty of Bach is the freedom he gives us!"
This interview is reprinted from the Winter 2001-Spring 2002 issue of FIDELIO Magazine. For related articles, scroll down or click here. Andras Schiff gave a piano recital in Hamburg, Germ any, on April 25, 2001, which aroused such a storm of enthusiasm in the audience, that, following the artist's content-rich, as well as extraordinarily technically-demanding concert, they called for three encores. Schiff had deliberately provoked his audience with the program: Bach's art of composition ran through the entire concert like a "red thread." The principles of Classical composition could be heard clearly, not only from Beethoven and Schumann (of course), but in the "modern" works by Janácek and Bartók (both of whom were composing at the beginning of the last century). And, Schiff manifests this self-same courage—to use deliberate intellectual challenges to surprise and to educate his audience—even beyond the concert hall. For example, his fight against the absurdly high "Karajan-tuning," which he broadened with a new battle on the sidelines of the last Salzburg Festival. Because of his invitation, members of the Berlin and Vienna Philaharmonics (both of which orchestras p

Historically conscious pianist Andras Schiff is scheduled to perform at the Wisconsin Union Theater Friday, March 8, at 8 p.m. "At 46," says the Baltimore Sun, "the Hungarian-born [Andras] Schiff is considered one of the foremost pianists of our age, a musician as celebrated for his ideas and insight as for his tone and technique." History informs Schiff's music. Considered a major interpreter of Beethoven and Bach, he has conducted orchestras from the keyboard the way it was done during those composers' lives. In his Madison performance, Schiff will play music by Beethoven, Janacek and Schumann. "Politics and art are not really separable," says Schiff, a Jewish citizen of Austria who has protested the far-right government there in the recent past. "Those who disagree should remember the times when the works of Heine, Mendelssohn and others were thrown into the flames."

    Beethoven, Schubert,
    The programme notes open with a message from the conductor/pianist Andras Schiff and – in the context of this Klemperer-like programme – is worth quoting in full: "Otto Klemperer’s recordings with the Philharmonia Orchestra of masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn and others have been a revelation and inspiration to me since my teens. Today, I admire him even more. His humanity, razor-sharp intellect, sense of rhythm, and grasp of form and structure are always in the service of the composer and of the work. He thinks and feels like a composer. In an age of overblown conducting stars, his lack of ego and vanity is all the more remarkable. We must always remember him as a monumental musician." Andras Schiff’s direct, ‘classical’ reading of Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture was indeed conducted in the manner of Klemperer: measured tempi, taut rhythms, a clarity of orchestral textures coupled with an architectural grasp of structure. However, what was lacking was Klemperer’s strong sense of establishing a dark, weighty bass-line (so essential in Beethoven’s scoring). This may have been due to the mere four double basses which were placed at the back of the platform divided by the timpani in the middle. Both the ‘cellos and basses were barely audible and often the woodwind were not pointed enough. The

    Discussions: Goldberg Variations BWV 988 – played by Andras Schiff Donald Satz wrote (October 5, 2003):
    Comparison Version : Schiff/Decca/1983
    I should report from the start that I am not a big fan of Andras Schiff's 1983 recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations from Decca which can also be found on the Penguin label. I find his performance mannered and fussy, often destroying a fine sense of flow and momentum. Further, he can be so reticent in his touch with both the upper and lower voices that the impact he conveys keeps cutting out.
    So, why would I even bother acquiring Schiff's new version? Mainly because about 20 years have passed since the earlier recording, and I've always thought that Schiff has what it takes to be an exceptional representative for Bach's music.
    Although I hoped for better things from Schiff this time around, I am absolutely bowled over by his wonderful new interpretation. Largely gone are the mannerisms and search for nuances that aren't there. More significant, the reticence of twenty years ago is now absent; Schiff's newly assertive touch is consistent and a joy to listen to. Instead of hanging back in the shadows, Schiff is now a full participant in Bach's

    I like to think in terms of projects and not just single concerts, to choose a composer and explore his works, as I am now doing with Jan¡Äek.
    When people think of Jan¡Äek, they think of his operas; the instrumental music is not as well known as it deserves to be. It was through the conductor Rafael Kubel­k, a mentor and dear friend, that I first encountered many of Jan¡Äek’s works. I was immediately struck by the composer’s fantastic imagination. Whatever he writes, it’s always something unexpected. Jan¡Äek uses a vivid range of colors, sometimes close to impressionism, in a way that is very modern, very original, and very experimental.
