Notes & Reviews:

"For many years, it has seemed to me that these three sonatas written in 1828, shortly before Schubert's death in November 1828, represent three different reactions to death and mortality. The C minor Sonata represents anger and terror; the A major Sonata is a glorious affirmation of life; and the B-flat Sonata represents the final resignation and acceptance. These sonatas are Schubert's greatest works for piano, and are among the greatest piano works by any composer." - Gabriel Chodos, pianist
