Notes and Editorial Reviews

Listeners may find in Schubert’s music a sense of unrequited longing that the Italian scholar Angela Carone called a “not yet” quality; this sense of “becoming” resounds throughout Schubert’s 3 Klavierstuke. The six miniatures that eventually became known as Moments Musicaux suggest a range of moods and character sketches which Mendelssohn referred to as “songs without words,” anticipating his own. Carlo Grante performs these works on a rare, meticulously preserved 1923 Bosendorfer Imperial. “Carlo Grante should be renamed Carlo Grande. He is one of the best pianists around, the ‘man for all seasons,’ from the spring of Scarlatti to the summer of Schubert and the autumn of Busoni (there is no winter yet).” (Paul Badura-Skoda) Listeners may find in Schubert’s music a sense of unrequited longing that the Italian scholar Angela Carone called a “not yet” quality; this sense of “becoming” resounds throughout Schubert’s 3 Klavierstuke.
