Sir András Schiff’s recital at the 2015 Mozartfest was a completely sold-out event: so book early to make sure of your tickets for this return visit. The programme begins with Mendelssohn’s restless Fantasia or “Scottish Sonata” and Beethoven’s intimate Op 78 Sonata, one of the composer’s own favourites; it continues with two sets of Brahms’s highly personal short pieces; and it concludes, refreshingly, with Bach, the last of the so-called English Suites.
