When Sir András Schiff expressed his wish to support new talent, the idea of "Building Bridges" was born: a series featuring three young pianists each season. Sir András chooses them, having heard them somewhere in the world during masterclasses or at auditions. He works with each one of them to define a finely crafted recital program that he believes showcases their special talents while fitting the idea of the series.
Now in its seventh season, Building Bridges has proven a great success in Antwerp, Berlin, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Florence, Frankfurt am Main, Milan, Weimar, Zurich and at music festivals across Europe.
The public is happy to be part of supporting early careers develop. The musicians appreciate being offered a unique opportunity and intimate situation where they may perform their own individual programs, far from any competition pressure. And whenever his schedule allows it, Sir András joins the audience to listen to their performances.
The concerts are schedules as follows:
Elena Nefedova, March 10th from 19.30
Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula, March 16th from 19.30
Chiara Opalio, March 23rd from 19.30
Gile Bae, March 30th from 19.30
