András Schiff, Schubert - Impromptus mp3 album

András Schiff: Franz Schubert Sonatas & Impromptus album artwork. Photograph: ECM Records. There have been discs of late Beethoven – the Diabelli Variations and the Op 126 Bagatelles – and, two years ago, a first pair of Schubert sonatas, in G major and B flat, D894 and D960. The latest set now completes Schiff’s survey of the late sonatas with the C minor D958 and A major D959, recorded in the Beethoven-Haus three years ago. These sonatas are each preceded by a set of smaller pieces, the Four Impromptus D899 and the Three Pieces D946.

When András Schiff’s first double album with late piano works by Franz Schubert was released on ECM New Series in 2015, critics and audiences paid particular attention to the pianist’s choice of a fortepiano built by Franz Brodmann in 1820. In the liner notes, Schiff explained his conversion from Saul to Paul, advocating a historically informed style of playing on instruments used in the classical era and describing the tonal characteristics of the Brodmann piano. The timbre of the instrument, he reasoned, reflected a typically Viennese quality, gentle, melancholy, and song-like. Schubert, meanwhile, was considered a miniaturist, his Impromptus and Moments musicaux meeting with approval much more than his major, cyclical works. It took a long time, until the late 1920s, for Eduard Erdmann and Artur Schnabel to bring these works up for serious consideration on the concert stage.

Franz Schubert's Impromptus are a series of eight pieces for solo piano composed in 1827. They were published in two sets of four impromptus each: the first two pieces in the first set were published in the composer's lifetime as Op. 90; the second set was published posthumously as Op. 142 in 1839 (with a dedication added by the publisher to Franz Liszt)

It was a surprise to many when pianist András Schiff took up the playing of historical instruments in mid-career, but by now he is generally acclaimed as one of the few players who can draw equally good results from both historical pianos and modern ones. The 1820 Viennese instrument by Franz Brodmann heard here has appeared on several of his recordings, and you can see why he acquired it (when not in action, it lives on loan at the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn).

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. In the latest chapter in András Schiff’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 Donat in the booklet), the C minor Sonata D 958 and the.
