Pianists who take the concert world by storm don’t come along that often. Igor Levit is one of those. In the Großes Festspielhaus he performs the last three Beethoven sonatas from the years 1820/22, a wildly acclaimed finale of his performances of the Beethoven cycle: “Anyone who has heard even a part of it will not be able to avoid admitting the still young pianist to the Olympus of the piano gods for good“ (Salzburger Nachrichten).

Also honoring the anniversary of Beethoven is the great Daniel Barenboim. On the program of this very special evening are the Diabelli Variations and (like his colleague Igor Levit) Piano Sonata Op. 31. 70 years ago to the day of this very performance, on August 19, 1950, the famed pianist gave his first public concert in Argentina at the age of seven. Now he has returned to Salzburg to celebrate his stage anniversary at the Festival.

The incomparable Martha Argerich as well pays tribute to Beethoven. Together with her long-term collaborator Renaud Capuçon they combine their considerable star power for a chamber music evening dedicated to pieces by Schumann, Prokofiev and - above all - Beethoven, performing his Violin Sonata no. 8 in G major.

Pianist András Schiff is one of the long-time guests of the Salzburg Festival. In his concert he contrasts Leoš Janáček with Schubert – “perfectly balanced, down to the last melodic and rhythmic detail“ raves Die Presse.
All four concerts are available in UHD.
