“This repertoire speaks to me in such a profound way.It strikes a chord in me in a way that no other music does.” Leif Ove Andsnes
Following four ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed recordings of the Schubert piano sonatas and lieder with Ian Bostridge, EMI Classics are now pleased to release the piano sonatas in one 2CD set. The Schubert Lieder featuring Bostridge will be released later in the year.
This is a welcome separating of Andsnes's last Schubert sonatas from their couplings with Bostridge's way with some Lieder. These are noble accounts, but limited in an intensely competitive field. BBC ***
