Schubert: Piano Works, Vol. 8

Shipping time: In stock | Free shipping within the US
Schubert’s Impromptus have long been amongst his most beloved works, secure in the piano benches of amateurs, the curricula of students and the recitals of professionals long before his Schubert’s sonatas were revived. However, in the context of the piano music of Schubert’s time, they are deeply problematic works whose difficult publication history reveals much about the relationships between public performance and the sheet music business in early 19th century Vienna. This new release features renowned pianist Paul Berkowitz performing his Four Impromptus D. 899 and Four Impromptus D. 935. Paul Berkowitz has recorded the complete piano sonatas of Schubert for Meridian Records to worldwide acclaim. He was described by the London Sunday Times as being “in the royal class of Schubert interpreters” and his recordings of the Last Three Schubert Piano Sonatas were included among the same newspaper’s Records of the Year. His recording of Schumann’s Kreisleriana was selected by BBC Radio Record Review as the best of all available recordings. He has also released a series of three recordings of Brahms Piano Music. With these recordings of the Impromptus, Moments Musicaux, and other repertoire as the final two volumes of a 9-release cycle of major works for piano by Schubert for Meridian, Mr. Berkowitz brings to a close this cycle of Schubert piano works which he first began in 1984.
