Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Pianist David Korevaar, whose playing has been called a "musical epiphany" by Gramophone, performs a wide range of repertoire, from the time of Bach to the present. This recording is of two Schubert piano sonatas.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The other sonata is a completely different animal, and is performed with more dramatic impetus. This is most apparent in the Andantino, where the pianist seizes on the virtuosic elements and makes them come astonishingly alive. The Scherzo is kept frothy and light, with the pedal kept at bay. The Rondo finale is both as spirited and sensitive as one could wish - Schubert's charming theme cajoled with attractive freshness. There is much to enjoy in both these performances, and the pianist has obviously given great thought into his interpretations. I look forward to more from this artist.
