»I love the piano,« says Murray Perahia. »I think it has a number of secrets we need to elicit from it.« Ever since the early 1970s, classical music fans have been captivated by the American artist’s incessant exploration of the instrument’s depths and infinite expressive possibilities.
As a pianist and permanent guest conductor of the renowned Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Perahia has succeeded in producing numerous reference recordings of »wonderful lightness and an unmatched palette of timbres« (Rondo). The London orchestra, for its part, is proud to have a connoisseur and outstanding performer like Perahia for the Baroque to Romantic repertoire at its side.
The centrepiece of the Munich concert is Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor: the declaration of love to his wife Clara set in music is considered by many to be the most beautiful piano concerto of the Romantic period. For Murray Perahia once again the perfect opportunity to elicit the secrets of the grand piano.
