Pianist András Schiff completes the cycle of Bartók’s three piano concertos that he began two nights before. The concert is a reunion of sorts: Schiff was born in Budapest and attended school there with conductor Iván Fischer, and in 1997 they recorded Bartók’s concertos together.

Also on the program are Bartok’s Hungarian Peasant Songs and Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C Major.

Interview: Schiff and Fischer Discuss the program and their collaboration:
