Barry Douglasís critically acclaimed series of Schubertís piano works reaches its fourth instalment.

For this recording, Douglas has chosen to present three piano sonatas from the middle of Schubertís short life: no.4 (D537) and no.9 (D575), both composed in 1817, complemented with the Sonata no.13 (D664), composed just two years later.

The three sonatas all spring from a period when Schubert was experimenting with tonality, both in the sense of less usual keys (D575 is in B major) and in terms of the relative keys of the movements, and of sections within movements.

Irrespective of this experimentation, Schubertís incredible talent for melody and lyricism shines through each of the works, and is masterfully heightened in Douglasís interpretations.

Like the previous three volumes in the series, the recording was made on a Steinway Model D in the Curtis Auditorium at the CIT Cork School of Music.
