Franz Schubert, Vol. 1: Piano Sonatas D 664 & 960; Impromptu D 899/4.
Schubert: Piano Sonatas . .has been added to your Cart. The album closes with a less well known sonata in A (D664), composed in 1819 when Schubert was 22. In between are the Moments Musicaux (D780), a set of six short pieces in a variety of moods, and two sets of Impromptus (D899 and D935) composed in 1827 or possibly earlier. The first impromptu of D899, in C-minor, is a set of free variations on the opening theme; there's what seems like a second theme in the major, but it's really only a variation of the main theme
Franz Schubert's Impromptus are a series of eight pieces for solo piano composed in 1827. They were published in two sets of four impromptus each: the first two pieces in the first set were published in the composer's lifetime as Op. 90; the second set was published posthumously as Op. 142 in 1839 (with a dedication added by the publisher to Franz Liszt)

As I didn't have those Schubert works on sacd and considering the price tag, I thought why not ? Given Richer's reputation of being one of all time's best pianists, my only fear was the sound quality. The original tapes are from 1962 and 1972. I have to admit I was stunned. I spinned this disc and started listening to it thinking about something else. But the music grabbed me immediately. Franz Schubert - Piano Sonata No. 21 in B flat major, D. 960.
