Farewell Concert of Christian Zacharias at the Museum of Gianadda
Christian Zacharias is set to bid farewell to his piano, marking the occasion with a remarkable solo recital at the Pierre Gianadda Foundation in Martigny (Switzerland)
Zacharias's repertoire for the evening features Franz Schubert's enchanting Sonata in G Major, D 894, followed by Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons. When asked about his choice, Zacharias shared, "Schubert was a natural choice for me. Not only is he one of my favourite composers, but he is also one of the few who have been steadfast companions throughout my career as a pianist.” This Sonata in G Major, holds a special place in his heart, as it was featured on his very first album, released back in 1976 on vinyl, which greatly contributed to his reputation.
