Up with András!

Hungarian-born Pianist András Schiff was given the Robert Schumann Prize of the City of Zwickau. The award will be awarded on June 8, the day of the composer’s birth. This could be a needed recognition of his great talent.
Schiff has recently abandoned his native country, rejecting the right-wing and vaguely racist politics of the new government. He is a musical icon of Hungary and has toured with Hungarian orchestras for decades.
We hope he can return home one day.
