Beloved for his wonderfully lyrical gift as well as for the innovations of form and harmony he brought to his music, Franz Schubert helped pioneer the Romantic piano style as he influenced later composers. This attractive compilation of his most accessible piano music displays that musical brilliance in a variety of his best-loved pieces.
Reproduced from the authoritative Breitkopf & Härtel editions, these gems include lively Scottish and German dances (the 11 Ecossaises and 12 Ländler), the Scherzo in B-flat, the enormously popular Moments Musicaux, and four Impromptus from Op. 90 and Op. 142. These short classics are balanced by two of Schubert's greatest masterworks ― the Sonata in A Major, Op. 120, and the world-famous "Wanderer" Fantasy, a work whose new concepts of unified musical form influenced the sonatas and concertos of Franz Liszt.

About the Author

Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797–1828) ranks among the greatest composers of the early Romantic era. Although he died at the age of 31 he was remarkably prolific, and his oeuvre includes more than 600 vocal works, seven complete symphonies, and a large body of piano and chamber music.
