Schubert: Piano Sonatas D. 960 & 664, Impromptu D. 899/4

Sviatoslav Richter (piano)


Richter conquered Paris with this kind of Schubert scores. The last and immense Piano Sonata No. 21 in B-flat major, D. 960 (1828) stayed a long time in his repertoire chasing the 'small', once faciend sonatas. He captures brilliant ambiguity of these series of exclamations, more a cycle of impromptus than a real sonata dixit Beethoven, its strict architecture opposing its instinctive imaginativeness. Richter exudes overwhelming charm of an isolated Impromptu before respecting the post Mozartian baroque approach in the 1819 small A major Sonata D. 664.
