Andras Schiff

For at least 5 years, Beethoven has been pianist Andras Schiff’s near-obsession. He had to be, as Schiff joined the ranks of pianists who’ve taken on a monumental task: performing all of Beethoven’s sonatas. If you’re a regular listener to WKSU’s classical music, you’ve probably heard many of his ECM recordings of these works as they’ve been released.

Now he has nearly arrived at his destination — the final three sonatas, the ones Beethoven composed as his hearing failed and he turned ever more inward, the ones that deeply puzzled his listeners and many more for at least another century.

This Wednesday evening (1 April 2009) at 8pm PT, Andras Schiff will take to the stage of Disney Hall in Los Angeles for the final installment in his US series of Beethoven sonata concerts. He’ll perform sonata #30 in E, Op109; sonata #31 in A flat, Op110; and sonata #32 in C minor, Op111.

Public radio station KUSC and NPR are joining forces to stream the concert over the web. If you live in Northeast Ohio you’ll have to stay up a bit late Wednesday night (8pm PT is 11pm ET), but you can hear it live at NPR Concerts.
