Alfred Brendel’s performances of Schubert and Liszt pieces that he made his specialty; an Arthur Rubinstein Chopin performance from nearly 50 years ago; virtuosos Arturo Beneditti Michelangeli and Emil Gilels’ performances of Ravel, Beethoven, and Prokofiev; and “the most inspiring music film I ever saw” (Independent) on the truth about one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century - Sviatoslay Richter.

Composer and Pianist Timo Andres will be giving what is sure to be a “richly imaginative” (NY Times) performance this Sunday, February 24 at 11am at the Walter Reade Theater. Works by Schumann, Ades, and Chopin will all be featured in the program, as well as one of the artist’s own pieces which have previously earned the praise as being “the kind of sprawling, brazen work that a young composer should write” (The New Yorker).
