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.
Every element of these two sonatas has been worked out, considered; in the hands of a lesser artist the results could have been pernickety but instead they tend towards the transcendent.
This is a marvelously life-enhancing disc. Go and hear it for yourself.
