No other great composer left as many works for piano duet as Franz Schubert. Making music with others, often in a social circle, was a solid component of the Schubertian circle of friends. With the Fantasie in F minor D 940 op. post. 103, however, Schubert completely left the sphere of social gatherings and created, in the first months of his last year of life, a work of almost symphonic form, whose elegiac atmosphere at the beginning sets the tone for the entire work. Schubert was apparently aware of the significance of the work and prepared it for printing: the autograph already contained in his hand the opus number of the first edition published in March 1829.

    If you like Schubert, this is a fun and interesting piece to play with a friend. Very emotional music with beautiful harmonies. The secondo part is a bit easier than the primo part, but both are doable if you are willing to sit down and learn the notes at a...

    slower tempo to begin with, esp. the second half which goes a little faster.

    A sublime piece from Schubert. Hard to play for a low intermediate, but enjoy managing bits of it. Wish all music books would lie flat when open as this one does.

    Challenging for both primo and secondo, but not excessively so (I would rate this "9," not "10"), lovely melodic lines, a pleasure to play!

    The horizontal design makes it easy for each pianist to read his or her own part. The page turns are well placed (alternating between primo and secondo). There are no fingerings (a few key ones would have been beneficial, especially near the end!).

  • May 03, 2007 MEMORABLE AND BEAUTIFUL........................

    I first discovered this four-handed piano work by Schubert when it was played in the movie "Madame Sousatska" starring Shirley MacLaine as an eccentric piano teacher in London. It's beautiful opening melody began to haunt me and I would find myself humming it. I enjoy having the music...

    but unfortunately have not found anyone (yet) to play it with me. I am really looking forward to that. I must admit that I was never that fond of Schubert in the past, but this piece caused me to look at some of his other works that I am now also enjoying.
