"Andreas Staier performs Schumann on an 1837 Erard — a brand about which Chopin said: 'You can thump it and bash it, it makes no difference: the sound is always beautiful.' Mr. Staier’s sensitive, passionate playing is remarkable throughout as he coaxes a range of colors and timbres from his keyboard."
The International Classical Music Award winners will be revealed on January 20, 2015. The Award Ceremony and Gala concert will take place on March 28 in Ankara, Turkey, with a performance by the Bilkent Symphony Orchestra conducted by Isin Metin.
