SCHUBERT, F.: Piano Works for Four Hands, Vol. 5 (Humphreys, Schiller)

Many of Schubert’s piano duets were written for his pupils, the daughters of Count Esterházy, during summer months at the Count’s country estate. These include the ‘Grand Duo’, an ambitious, large-scale and challenging work of symphonic dimensions, the more light-hearted Four Ländler and the remarkable Variations sur un thème original, which are considered by many to be Schubert’s greatest set of variations.
