Notes and Editorial Reviews

The legendary Polish pianist returns in his first solo album for DG for over twenty-five years. Included are revelatory readings of Piano Sonatas D. 959 & D. 960, Schubert’s last major compositions for the piano before his death at age thirty-one. Krystian performed these last two eternal masterworks intensely over the last few years to highest critical acclaim. This album is set to take its place among the great Schubert recordings.
