In this eagerly awaited solo album for the enterprising Aparté label, Louis Schwizgebel appropriates two gems of piano repertoire: Sonata D845 (no.16) in A minor, considered the first of Schubert's maturity, impresses with the mastery of its structure and its expressive power. Worthy of a symphony, D958 in C minor, 19th out of the 21 that he composed, symbolises the mastery of the composer, freed from the weight of his admiration for Beethoven.

Enhanced by recording quality featuring an extraordinary harmonic palette that will delight the most demanding audiophile, this project promises to be one of the finest piano CDs of the year.

Louis Schwizgebel won second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2012, and soon afterwards became one of the BBC’s New Generation Artists. Acclaimed by The Guardian as ‘a pianist with a profound gift’, he presents music by some of the piano repertoire’s greatest composers.
