Piano Sonata B flat major - Schubert, Hyperion-Digital-label, Kovacevich - A66004

£8.99

Product description

(featuring the soloist Stephen Bishop Kovacevich, in a recording made in April 1982. Collectable, digital release on the respected "Hyperion" label)

It is possible to view this Piano Sonata in B flat major, as the most important musical statement that Franz Schubert (1797-1828) ever made - an utterance of measured and compassionate comment, on humanity and human affairs. It is music that cannot be hurried, but which will arrive where it wants to be at precisely the right moment - it is difficult to imagine that Schubert, in this the last of his sonatas, could have made a more fitting farewell to the piano ...

Side One : Piano Sonata in B flat major D.960, by Schubert :-
I Molto moderato.
Side Two : Piano Sonata ... (conclusion) :-
1) II Andante sostenuto 2) III Scherzo : Allegro vivace con delicatezza 3) IV Rondo : Allegro ma non troppo.

(further, English-language notes by Harold Truscott, on Reverse Sleeve (sample Photo Four))

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX/EX.
