András Schiff - Sonatas and Impromptus (CD DOUBLE (SLIMLINE CASE))

In the latest chapter in AndrásSchiff's ongoing documentation of Franz Schubert's music, the great pianist plays the Four Impromptus D 899, and compositions from 1828, the last year of Schubert's too brief life: The Three Pieces D 946 ("impromptus in all but name" notes Misha Donatin 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 Schubert's 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 Schiff's interpretations: "I cannot think of anyone of his calibrewho has mastered the fortepiano as well as the modern piano and shown such distinction on both," wrote Stephen Plaistow in an Editor's Choice review inGramophone."In Schubert Schiff has a claim to be considered sovereign among today's players, carrying forward the reading and interpretation of him into areas that others have not fully explored."
