I was hanging around the offices of the Australian Knappertsbusch Association when the phone rang.

“Bernard, it’s Jeb Bush here – the Florida guy! America needs strong leadership and I’m here to lead! I won the lottery when I was born 63 years ago and looked up and saw my mom. Mother is the strongest woman I know! And my dad is the greatest man alive. If anyone disagrees we'll go outside! ”

I rolled my eyes. “Jeb, you’re not still bumbling around and burning your way through another $100m of a Super-PAC?”

“Bernard, I want to replace Obamacare with a ‘consumer-driven’ system built on innovations like the Apple Watch. I think Detroit would do really well if we repopulate it with young, aspirational people. Mr brother and his former advisers like Paul Wolfowitz are schooling me on foreign policy. Taking out Saddam Hussein turned out to be a good deal!”

“Jeb, I wonder if the DNA pool of the Bush family is shallower than the Aral Sea. Now, I was thinking of you recently. Have you heard of a pianist András Schiff?”

“If he’s a Democrat who believes in tax-reform, I’ll give him a warm kiss!”

“Dunno about that . . . Anyway, András Schiff is your counterpart, pianist-wise. He is the Jeb Bush of his profession. He oozes ‘low energy’. Try as he might, he cannot shift into overdrive. Consider this 2005 concert. It came my way as a lark from Funkin’ Duncan – a rogue member of the AKA. The same footage from the commencement of the concert is used to open each work which is understandable in some ways: as the night progresses, Schiff becomes sweatier than Elvis in Vegas. Even so, that’s a mystery in itself as Schiff is lapidary in his movements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful DVD, highly recommended! 9 Mar. 2014
By harold edward stessel - Published on Amazon.com

Schiff introduces and performs a range of Haydn piano music--early, middle and late period pieces--and includes not only some of the relatively familiar piano sonatas but some rarely heard pieces in other forms. The introductions are charming and reflect the humanity of Andras Schiff, and the performances testify to the humanity of Haydn. Schiff does not "take over" the music as Richter does in his Haydn CDs, but allows it to unfold in all its charm, surprise and passion.
