Piano Sonata no. 18 in G major, D. 894 -I. Molto moderato e cantabile
Performer: Paul Pitman
Composer: Franz Schubert
Key: G Major
The Piano sonata in G major, D. 894 (Op. 78) by F. Schubert was completed in October 1826. Sometimes called the Fantasie -a title which the publisher gave to the first movement- it was the last of Schubert’s sonatas published during his lifetime, and was later described by Schumann as the “most perfect in form and conception” of any of Schubert’s sonatas. The English pianist and Schubert specialist Imogen Cooper has described the G major sonata as “one of the rare completely serene sonatas that he wrote. Sviatoslav Richter stated that this was his favourite Schubert sonata. He is noted for his extremely slow, solemn account of the work.
