Franz Schubert Piano Sonatas Volume 2

NI6298
£14.99

Details

Second Volume of Feltsman’s Piano Sonata Series. Volume 1 (NI 6297) is available. Schubert has been described as the last ‘classical’ and as the first ‘romantic’ composer, but it is really impossible to pin a meaningful label on him. He was and still is a very special case, a lonely figure in musical history, a dreamer who brought into music a degree of intimacy, despair, hope and disappointment previously unknown. Schubert was a sincere, shy and vulnerable man (though he did not lack confidence in himself as an artist) and his personality is clearly reflected in his music.

Reviews

"This recording is the product of a thoughtful artist working at the peak of his powers. For Schubert lovers, it is essential. For piano lovers in general, it is a strong recommendation." Brian Reinhart, musicweb-international.com

"This is a splendid disc, beautifully balanced and elegantly played; I look forward to more in the series."  Ralph Moore, musicweb-international.com

"Speaking of emotion, Schubert’s very last sonata has that in spades. You would not want it any other way. Here the pianist is on firm territory, though his competition is practically every other pianist of note, plus many also-rans. If I cannot say he adds anything new, he does maintain a high score among the top third of interpreters. It only remains to add these newcomers to my already sagging Schubert shelves. Yes, they are that worthy." American Record Guide
