Schubert: Piano Sonatas - Daniel Barenboim

Marking 60 years as a recording artist, a master creates a near definitive set of Schubert's sonatas.

Daniel Barenboim is marking 60 years as a recording artist this year and to celebrate, Deutsche Grammophon has released a new complete recording of Schubert's Piano Sonatas.

Barenboim has described these works as "a revelation. The music laughs and cries, it is at the same time sad and cheerful.”

This album came in at No.19 in Classic FM's Album of the Year 2014. See the full chart here >

For the listener it is, as Barenboim himself has observed, an intense and fascinating journey to see how Schubert's sonata writing developed over time. 

With this collection, Barenboim asserts his position among the greatest pianists of our time, bringing out every nuance and emotion with his immaculate technique and virtuosity.
