The Schubert Series IV – James Lisney, piano

The Schubert Series IV – James Lisney, piano

Franz Schubert
Sonata in a, D 784
Sonata in E flat, D 568
Sonata in D, D 850

The final concert in James Lisney’s series exploring Schubert’s eleven completed piano sonatas.

In the summer of 1823, after the first manifestation of his venereal disease, Schubert wrote the poem Mein Gebet, in which he expressed a longing for the comfort of death; the first songs of Die Schöne Mullerin and the A Minor Sonata reflect his troubled mind. Two years later, he travelled to Gastein and Salzburg– the summer of the ‘Great’ C major Symphony and the extrovert Sonata in D. The Sonata in E flat is a version of the Sonata in D flat, D 567 that Schubert is thought to have revisited during 1825/26.
