Franz Schubert - Sonatas And Impromptus

    Andras Schiff Franz Schubert - Sonatas And Impromptus CD      In the latest chapter in András Schiffs ongoing documentation of Franz Schuberts music, the great pianist plays the Four Impromptus D 899, and compositions from 1828, the last year of Schuberts too brief life: The Three Pieces D 946 (impromptus in all but name notes Misha Donat in the CD booklet), the C minor Sonata D 958 and the A major Sonata D 959. Schiff again chooses to use his fortepiano made by Franz Brodmann in Vienna, around 1820. It is to me ideally suited to Schuberts keyboard works, he has said. There is something quintessentially Viennese in its timbre, its tender mellowness, its melancholic cantabilità. Critics have agreed, unanimous also in their praise of Schiffs interpretations: I cannot think of anyone of his calibre who has mastered the fortepiano as well as the modern piano and shown such distinction on both, wrote Stephen Plaistow in an Editors Choice review in Gramophone.  In Schubert Schiff has a claim to be considered sovereign among todays players, carrying forward the reading and interpretation of him into areas that others have not fully explored.
