In 1828; the last year of his life; Franz Schubert composed three sonatas for piano which are generally described as the culmination of his lifelong occupation with the piano sonata genre. Schubert's role as successor to classical-era composers is clearly evident in them; while at the same time his very own; deeply personal tone resounds here. Our carefully revised edition of this frequently performed B flat Major Sonata is based on the autograph and first edition. Once again; Schubert here seems to have gathered up all his powers of introspection and tranquillity. Above all; the calm theme of the first movement captivates through its dreamlike expression. While it does not pose technical-virtuosi problems for the player; it is highly demanding in terms of luminosity of tone and of subtlety of nuance.
