Mendelssohn: Overture, The Hebrides, Op. 26

Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 56, 'Scottish'

Schumann: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54

Royal Festival Hall, London
Tuesday 10 November 2015

'As fresh and uncluttered by tradition as if we were hearing it for the first time'.

'A Schumann Piano Concerto that wasn’t beaten within an inch of its life ... but one with delicacy, life and boundless energy'.

'That sense of newness that Schiff said he was aiming for was well and truly nailed'.

'An incredibly intimate and touching performance'.
