About this Recording

SCHUBERT, F.: Piano Works for Four Hands, Vol. 6 (Humphreys, Markham)

Franz Schubert’s gift for songwriting transfers into the lyrical sensitivities in his instrumental music. Composed for himself and friends to play at musical evenings, the brilliant Rondo, D 608 shares the musical burden equally between the parts. The Sonata for Piano Duet, D 617 echoes the spirit of Mozart and was written for the daughters of Count Esterházy, the Six Grandes Marches et Trios having their place in the ballroom. Of these Nos 2 and 3 can be found in Vol 5 (8.570354), which was a Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’.
