Notes & Reviews:
Exclusive Chandos artist Barry Douglas, having produced two highly regarded discs of solo works by Brahms, now embarks on the complete solo piano works of Franz Schubert. This first volume features two large-scale works, the 'Wanderer' Fantasy and the Sonata in B flat major, alongside two Schubert songs transcribed by Liszt.
BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
On the evidence of this recording, the brilliant and extrovert Wanderer Fantasy is rather more suited to Barry Douglas's artistic temperament than the largely relaxed late Sonata in B flat. Not that his performance of the latter is seriously disappointing; there's a fine response to this music's ebb and flow.
Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
Douglas stands alongside the most distinguished in both works, the smaller pieces accorded similar care. An excellent disc.
