Carnegie Hall Presents Sir András Schiff, Piano
April 3 | 8:00 pm
One event on April 5, 2018 at 8:00pm
The fantasy, sonata, and suite are forms that inspired tremendous creativity in composers from Bach to Brahms. Mendelssohn’s Fantasia in F-sharp Minor unfolds in three movements, each imbued with simple, graceful themes. There’s nothing particularly English about Bach’s Suite No. 6, but it captivates with its balance of pulsing energy and tenderness. Brahms’s miniatures, particularly his fantasies, are quintessentially Romantic character pieces that evoke powerful moods with economy and great beauty.
