Notes and Editorial Reviews

Paul Berkowitz has previously recorded the complete Piano Sonatas of Schubert for Meridian Records in seven volumes, released in the late 1980s and 1990s to worldwide acclaim. He was described by the London Sunday Times as being “in the royal class of Schubert interpreters” and his previous recordings of the Last Three Schubert Piano Sonatas were included among the same newspaper’s Records of the Year of 1987. With these latest recordings of the Impromptus, Moments Musicaux and other repertoire as the final two volumes of a 9-release cycle of major works for piano by Schubert for Meridian, Mr. Berkowitz brings to a close this great cycle of Schubert piano works which he first began in 1984.
