Notes & Reviews:
This collection presents Schubert's complete piano sonatas, performed by internationally renowned pianist Martino Tirimo. Schubert was distinctly underappreciated during his lifetime; Liszt was among the first to realize his brilliance, stating: 'Such is the spell of your emotional world that it very nearly blinds us to the greatness of your craftsmanship.' This set - which, after years of meticulous research by Tirimo, was the first to feature all the sonatas in their truly complete form and in chronological order - showcases the effortless musicality of Schubert's piano sonatas, proving that Liszt was right to draw the world's attention to this great composer.
- 8CD set - The complete Schubert piano sonatas, including the towering trilogy D.958-960
- Pianist Martino Tirimo is a two-time competition winner
- This set claimed to be the first to be issued in true chronological order

Tirimo demonstrates that he has the temperament to encompass the entire gamut of Schubert's emotional range and proves to be a trustworthy guide through this great sequence of sonatas which span the whole of the composer's short, extraordinarily creative life.
