Celebrated pianist Sir András Schiff gives a masterclass on Schubert’s Impromptu in Eb major followed by a Westchase Music School student.

Sir András Schiff is world-renowned and critically acclaimed as a pianist, conductor, pedagogue, and lecturer. Born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1953, he started piano lessons at age five with Elisabeth Vadász. He continued his musical studies at the Ferenc Liszt Academy with Professor Pál Kadosa, György Kurtág, and Ferenc Rados, and in London with George Malcolm.

The following Masterclass entails an episode at Royal College of Music in London with the solo pianist Martin James Bartlett playing the Impromptu No 2 in Eb Major from Robert Schubert.

Westchase Music School student Tracy Tran is watching the Masterclass of Andras Schiff closely to prepare for her next Student Recital Performance. She will play the Impromptu in Eb Major and practices every day up to one hour.
