This event is part of the Southbank Centre's Classical Season. Maurizio Pollini is revered worldwide as today's towering elder statesman of the piano.
He makes a welcome return to Royal Festival Hall.
The Italian pianist's performances here have always proved highlights of the season. In recent years, he has been praised for his `peerless, supremely authoritative performances' (The Guardian). This programme is classic Pollini featuring a Chopin and Schumann mix and includes the lesser known wonderful Allegro in B minor which he has recorded for DG.
