Listen to the last Schubert on Limenmusic Web Tv

Why “The last Schubert”?

Because Impromptus, proposed by Limenmusic and performed by the Italian pianist Paolo Gilardi, are a series of pieces for solo piano composed in 1827, a year before the death of Franz Schubert, and first published during the composer’s lifetime (or shortly thereafter).
The Impromptu Op. 142 n. 2 is a posthumous work by Franz Schubert, consists of four separated piano works, usually considered as four movements sonata, due to the use of the same key, F minor. This idea was refuted by contemporary musicologists who established important differences between the set of Impromptus and Schubert’s acknowledged multi-movement works.
Drei Klavierstücke – D. 946, or “Three piano pieces” are solo pieces composed in 1828, just six months before the death of the composer. The first publication, in 1868, was edited by Johannes Brahms. Drei Klavierstücke are works rarely recorded or performed; pianists who have recorded this pieces includes: Imogen Cooper, András Schiff, Claudio Arrau, Maurizio Pollini.
In this concert, Impromptu Op. 142 n. 1 and Drei klavierstucke D946, are perfomed by the italian pianist Paolo Gilardi, winner of several national and international piano competitions, his performances have been always well reviewed by critics.
