Impromptus op.142 - Piano Sonata op.78

Andreas Staier
    • Apple Music

    Four Impromptus that look towards the sonata model, a sonata entitled ‘Fantasie’: it would appear that, in the works recorded here, Schubert was trying out all the possibilities of cyclic construction. These opened out before him new formal perspectives that would extend the conventional limits – just two years before his death.

    Andreas Staier plays a fortepiano by Christopher Clarke, 1996, after Conrad Graf, Vienna, 1827.
