Star pianist Daniel Barenboim embarks on a survey of Schubert’s completed piano sonatas. In each of the four recitals, Barenboim offers a journey through Schubert’s creative life, from the youthful sonatas of the earlier years to the great masterworks written during his final months. Universally recognized as supreme expressions of the Romantic spirit, these works, ignored after the composer’s death for more than a century, today stand at the centre of the repertoire, side by side with the piano works of Beethoven, Schubert’s admired predecessor and contemporary.
