Notes & Reviews:

Andras Schiff's Schubert sonata cycle was recorded during the early 1990s and won much critical acclaim. This was a reputation confirmed and further enhanced by his many concerts which included Schubert pieces. This 2-CD set contains the final trilogy of Piano Sonatas by Schubert and a group of pieces which is often set next to the last three sonatas by Beethoven as representing some of the composers' final and greatest achievements. By way of a major bonus the first set of Impromptus, D899 is also included. As well as a useful catalogue item and strong addition to the DOUBLE DECCA catalogue, this set also acts as a superb reminder of Andras Schiff's wonderful Schubert interpretations.
