The Sonata D664? The fine craftsmanship of a composer still writing in the shadow of the giant Beethoven; nine years later, Schubert, just thirty-one years old, produced what was, already, his last sonata (D960), just a few weeks before his shockingly premature death. So just nine years separate these two extremities in his output, but it would take many decades for these masterpieces to gain the same consideration as the late symphonies of Mozart or Beethoven’s op.132! This music is now cherished by today’s artists – among them Javier Perianes, who here returns to Schubert after a remarkable first volume that enjoyed great success with the public.

This pianist, born in 1962, is at the head of an impressive career, both as a concert artist and a teacher (he is a professor at the Conservatoire de Paris, after having been a teacher at Lyon), and his Discography is expanded from season to season: Debussy, Chausson, Liszt, Chopin; And many, many Schubert. This album proposes two of his ultimate sonatas: the unfathomable Sonata in B-flat major with its "divine lengths", written two months before death, and the Fourteenth in A minor of 1823, the last conceived in three movements . Denis Pascal is a pianist of clarity, articulation, phrasing, singing. We think we are witnessing a "renaissance" of the works, as if they were improvising them for us.

The sixth volume in Matthias Goerne's survey of Franz Schubert's lieder includes the posthumous collection Schwanengesang, which contains some of the loveliest and most disturbing songs Schubert ever composed. One problem in performing this ambiguous work of Schubert's last year lies in its alternation of sweet, lyrical songs with those of a much darker and even frightening character, and it's left to the singer and the pianist to balance the moods and to make the contrasts of expression as subtle as possible. Goerne and his accompanist Christoph Eschenbach meet the challenge by carefully shading the songs with a tempering of expressions that admits sorrow in the midst of joy and hope in the depths of despair.

The recording is similarly refined, intimate enough but never in-your-face, and delicately resonant, adding lustre to the gentle glow Brendel places around Schubert's sorrowful songs. And don't forget that analogy with Winterreise: maybe Brendel's Schubert Sonatas work so well because he hears the voices, and as a pianist he's simply one of the best singers. ..

Jorge Federico Osorio, an imaginative interpreter with a powerful technique (The New York Times), deftly pairs Brahmss final solo piano works with those by Schubert for an inventive program of richly satisfying works that capture the essence of each composers towering individuality. Here, Osorio records Brahmss Three Intermezzos, Op. 117, and Six Piano Pieces, Op 118, which he last recorded nearly two decades ago, to great acclaim: Quite marvelous, said BBC Music Magazine. Its clear that Jorge Federico Osorio is an important Brahmsian, proclaimed the Chicago Tribune. On his new album, Osorios penchant for color accentuates the individual character of these concentrated miniatures. Osorio has also chosen to record Schuberts final two Piano Sonatas, D. 959 and D. 960, epic in scale and brimming with melodic invention. His insights into the musics architecture yield eloquent performances of these spacious, ambitious masterworks.

The thirty-five CDs that make up the present boxed set are designed to acquaint listeners with one of the most important pianists of the 20th century or, if they are already familiar with his work, to allow them to rediscover it anew. Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) was the final representative of the great tradition of German pianists that also included Artur Schnabel (1882-1951) and Wilhelm Backhaus (1884-1969). Of the three, Kempff had by far the longest career - he gave his last public concert in 1982.

Pianist Valery Afanassiev – renowned for his strikingly individual and deeply introspective interpretations of the music of Franz Schubert – has paired two often extrovert works by the composer: the set of six Moments Musicaux and the Sonata D. 850. Recorded in September 2010 at the Auditorio Radiotelevisione Svizzera, Lugano, this is ECM’s second Schubert recording by the Moscow-born pianist, having previously released a live recording of Afanassiev performing Schubert’s final Sonata D. 960 at the 1986 Lockenhaus Festival that has become a connoisseur’s favourite.
