He is passionate about this music, and one could hardly find performances to compete with Sir András Schiff's. He has been awarded the Golden Mozart-Medaille by the Mozarteum International Foundation. In July of 2015, his last “Schubert” album received the recording of the month award from the Gramophone and the BBC Music Magazine.
