Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available: Schubert Live Vol 1 / Imogen Cooper and Schubert Live Vol 3 / Imogen Cooper

"Imogen Cooper is a natural Schubert player. She came to the composer through a love for his songs (accompanying a number of great Schubert singers), and it shows in how she makes the piano sing in these bittersweet sonatas and short pieces, largely from late in the composer's

"I remain convinced," Cooper says, "that Schubert's love for the voice -- the instrument inside the body -- and for poetry, have affected all of his great music, not the least the big piano works from 1823-28." Cooper never overplays the music, making what could be thought of as routine passages in Schubert's expansive G major sonata sound fresh." - Tom Huizenga, All Things Considered - National Public Radio
