New York Philharmonic Names Pianist András Schiff as its 2022/23 Artist-in-Residence


Hungarian pianist Sir András Schiff has been named as the New York Philharmonic's Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence for the 2022/23 season.

The 68-year-old will play two programs that feature him as concerto soloist, as well as conduct the orchestra, perform a solo recital, and collaborate with the orchestra's players for a chamber music appearance. Schiff's residency will coincide with the orchestra's return to the newly-finished David Geffen Hall, which has been recently been revitalized.

At present, the New York Philharmonic has listed Schiff's appearances through to the end of April. One program includes Haydn's Piano Concerto in D alongside Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, with Schiff conducting the orchestra in the overture from Mozart's Don Giovanni and Schubert's Unfinished Symphony.

A second program sees Schiff perform Bartók's Piano Concerto No. 3, with Ivan Fischer leading the orchestra in Dohnányi's Symphonic Minutes and Mozart's Jupiter Symphony. Schiff will also give an Artist Spotlight recital on April 11, with the program yet to be announced.

Born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1953, Schiff studied piano at the Liszt Ferenc Academy with Pal Kadosa, György Kurtág, and Ference Rados, and in London with George Malcome. He has performed cycles of the complete Beethoven sonatas, in addition to playing the complete works of J.S. Bach, Haydn, Schubert, and Bartók. Having collaborated with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, he now focuses primarily on solo recitals, play-conducting appearances, and exclusive conducting projects.

His many honors include the International Mozarteum Foundation’s Golden Medal, Germany’s Great Cross of Merit with Star, Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gold Medal, a knighthood for services to music, and a doctorate from the Royal College of Music.
