More Info:

Ingrid Marsoner dedicates her latest recording to Franz Schubert's late piano works and contrasts the "Four Impromptus D 899" with the more intimate and much less frequently performed "Three Piano Pieces D 946". The Impromptus D 899 were composed in 1827, around a year before Schubert's death and close in time to the "Winterreise" D 911. The composer was in a particularly gloomy mood at the time and it was certainly no coincidence that he chose such distant keys as G-flat major for the third piece, in keeping with the eerily moving beauty of these works. The "Three Piano Pieces, D 946" were composed in 1828, the year of Franz Schubert's death. They were not published during his lifetime and were only discovered and published by Johannes Brahms. At the end of his life, Franz Schubert studied counterpoint intensively and even attended a lesson with Simon Sechter, Vienna's first music theory teacher. In the middle section of the first piano piece in particular, one can discover a surprising polyphony for the composer. The CD concludes with the Allegretto in C minor D 915, also composed shortly before his death at the age of 31.
