SCHUBERT: Piano Sonatas No.16 in A minor, Op.42 D845 & No.17 in D, op.53 D850

Sviatoslav Richter

A juxtaposition of the first and second Grande Sonates for pianoforte of 1825, one a melancholic, intimate effusion that does not smile; the other, brimming with frothy joy close to a stylised Tyrolienne, then a refined Ländler whose emotional invention heralds Bruckner, followed by a moderato as light as it is timeless in its innocent, inalterable gaiety. A portrait such as only Richter the painter knew how to compose.
