Notes and Editorial Reviews

After his first CD devoted to Mompou, which attracted much favourable comment, Javier Perianes now turns to the 'short pieces' of Schubert. But appearances can be deceptive! For what the composer called 'impromptus' or 'Klaviersücke' went so far beyond the bounds of mere entertainment for amateurs that they were rejected by publishers on account of their difficulty. These 'lieder for solo piano', as one might term them, concentrate into a limited space all those emotional hints, those things left unsaid, to which Schubert alone possessed the key.
