Sir András Schiff is one of our time’s most popular musicians. As piano player, he particularly focused his numerous concerts on the cyclical performance of piano works composed by Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, and Bartók.

He plays with most of the internationally renowned orchestras and conductors and in 1999 founded his own chamber orchestra «Cappella Andrea Barca», which he closely cooperates with as conductor and soloist.

Sir András Schiff has already been heading Gstaad Piano Academy in 2012, 2013, and 2015 and has thus - next to his performances on Gstaad Menuhin Festival - become an established institution at Gstaad Academy. His lectures are not only highly appreciated by the students but also by our audience. 

In June 2014, Queen Elizabeth II ennobled him as reward for his musical merits.
