Christian Zacharias – Piano-Lecture

“When I talk about music, there are always music examples to listen to. Just talking about music is like describing a picture that one cannot see.” (Christian Zacharias)



Why does Schubert sound like Schubert?

‘A pianist of ideas’, as The New Yorker has called him, leading Schubert interpreter Christian Zacharias delves into the great composer’s unique melodic, harmonic and thematic flourishes. Through close examination of these musical hallmarks and idiosyncrasies, he takes us on a journey to the very essence of Schubert’s style.” (Wigmore Hall)

“[…] It’s a deep dive into Schubert’s musical world, but Zacharias consciously avoids jargon, making this video a fascinating watch for newcomers and aficionados alike.” (www.gramophone.co.uk)
