The emergence of the piano in the second half of the 18th century brought keyboard music not just a new range of expressive possibilities, but also coincided with the arrival of new ‘classical’ forms such as the sonata and rejuvenated, emotionally recharged versions of the fantasia and the theme and variations. Andreas Staier’s recital explores this crucial and exciting era in the evolution of the piano repertoire in works by some of the most influential keyboard composers of the day.

one of the most important pianists of our times. He is a player of exceptional insight and vigour, yet with an agility and wit that make hearing him a constant delight.’ The Independent
