Andras Schiff

October 28, 2008

Dvorak in prague

Pianist Andras Schiff joins the Budapest Festival Orchestra today for Dvorak's only piano concerto, with Ivan Fischer at the podium. It's a rare treat to hear a relatively unknown work by a famous composer, brought to life by one of the hottest pianists working today, in the composer's native country. You won't want to miss it.
