Daniel Barenboim: Schubert Piano Sonatas (IV) at the Royal Festival Hall – 2nd June 2015

Daniel Barenboim concludes his series of Schubert’s piano sonatas with two towering masterworks.

At times it feels as though the last of Schubert’s three sonatas in A minor (D.845) is staring over into the abyss – and little wonder as the opening unison is borrowed from his song ‘The Gravedigger’s Homesickness’ (‘Abandoned by all, I linger at the edge’).

The heart-rending phrases of Schubert’s final sonata, D.960, appear to carry the weight of the world on its prophetic shoulders – tragically he passed away less a month after signing off the manuscript.
