Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Tong's musical life is spent performing as soloist and chamber musician, as well as directing two chamber music festivals and teaching. The magnificent series of instrumental works Schubert produced after Beethoven's death in March 1827 suggests that the self-effacing former schoolteacher, who never dared approach the master in his lifetime (though he was a pall-bearer at his funeral), was eager to establish himself as his successor as a composer of instrumental music. To reinforce the point, in all three sonatas but especially the C minor, D958 and the A major, D959, he draws directly on Beethovenian precedents. While most of the Moments musicaux seem to date from the summer or autumn of 1827 - the year of Winterreise - two were composed several years earlier.
