Franz Schubert's Piano Sonata in A minor op. post. 164; presented here in an Urtext edition; numbers among his early sonatas written between 1815 and 1819. In many of these pieces; Schubert still struggles with form; the Sonata in A minor from March 1817; however; is already wonderfully accomplished. In contrast to Schubert's two later A minor piano sonatas; the key here does not yet result in a tragic; fatalistic sound. This is also due to the fact that he took every opportunity to brighten the key to the major; or to swerve into neighboring; friendlier harmonic regions.
