Schubert, F.: Drei Klavierstuecke D 946
Schubert, F.: Sonata in D major, D. 850 Op. 53
The 'Three Piano Pieces', D. 946, were composed by Schubert in May 1828, just six months before his early death, and published with Brahms as supervisor in 1868. The Sonata D. 850 is one of the few major pieces with fast tempos that Schubert ever wrote. It's also known as 'Gasteiner' Sonata.
This recording is the beginning of a collaboration with the multi-award winning pianist from Pescara, Alessandro Deljavan. "He is one of the most interesting young artists I have ever met in my life" wrote Fou Ts’ong about him.
To say the least, Deljavan's rendition is intense and dramatic, profound and sorrowful, bringing to life the sentiments of this composer who died at an early age.
The performance was recorded on a Fabbrini Steinway piano of the early 60's using Neumann tube microphones.
