Hungarian maestro Andras Schiff returns to the UK for one week only

-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- One of the world's most revered pianists and interpreters of Beethoven and Mozart, Andras Schiff, returns to the UK this month for another crack at his much-lauded ‘piano Everest' endeavour of playing all of Beethoven's piano sonatas chronologically.

First achieving the feat in 2006, the event was deemed a triumph by publications such as The Independent. This time around, The Sunday Times has been talking up tickets as in the ‘gold-dust' category; you might be lucky to get one of the remaining seats for Monday November 19th.

Playing at the Wigmore Hall in central London, a space praised for its acoustics and atmosphere especially conducive to recitals, Hungarian composer and pianist Andras Schiff will be gracing the stage for one week, from November 19th to the 26th.

Classical music fans and pianists will be flocking to the show; and for those making the trip especially, they are recommended to check out HotelMap, an ingenious widget which sources discounts and deals on London hotels by communicating directly with each hotel database.

For this last week of November there are plenty of options for couples coming up for the occasion – just a stone's throw from the venue is the Oxford Circus Holiday Inn, with rooms for £180 for a double on 19th November, offering a discount of over 50%.

Or there is 67% off 5* luxury at the Courthouse Doubletree by Hilton London, located just off busy Oxford Circus and ideal for guests looking to enjoy the restaurants and nightlife of Soho as well.
