German-born Swiss pianist Andreas Haefliger comes from a rich tradition of music making and is acclaimed for his sensitivity, musical insights and transcendent playing. Known for his innovative programming, he brings an all-encompassing passion to his concert appearances and recordings.

Typical of Haefliger’s creative approach is his long-running series of Perspectives recordings, juxtaposing Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas with very different, often surprising works for his instrument, and offering fresh approaches to the composer’s canon.

For his Howard Assembly Room debut, the last of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas, No. 32 in C minor, is contrasted with Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze – 18 sparkling pieces which reference Beethoven’s opera Fidelio – and Copland’s Variations on a Shaker Melody, plucked from his 1944 orchestral masterpiece Appalachian Spring.

“…powerfully assured… textual honesty and attention to articulation… wide-eyed sparkle and sense of fantasy…”
– Gramophone
