Honens @ Home: Han Chen performs Schubert

von Honens Piano Podcast | Vom 2021-09-09

Franz Schubert's last three piano sonatas, composed near the end of his life, are sometimes compared to Mozart's final trilogy of Symphonies 39 to 41. In both cases, each piece differs in character, was written in a period of despair, and is almost epic in scale. Today, we'll hear the first of the three final piano works from Schubert and the stormiest in mood, Piano Sonata No. 19 in C minor D. 958, performed by Finalist Han Chen in his Semifinals Solo Round of the 2018 Honens International Piano Competition. - Watch the video edition of this excerpt at
