Schubert's 22 piano sonatas sketch a most illuminating picture of the prematurely departed composer and of his compositonal path. From the first attempts of the gifted 16- to 19-year-old musician one can trace a continuous development leading to the five great sonatas which he wrote in the years 1823 and 1826, and finally to the three masterworks written shortly before his death, which place him on a level with Beethoven as a composer of sonatas. Volume II of the three-book Henle Urtext edition contains not only the G Major Sonata D 894 op. 78, with its glorious piano writing full of delicate expressiveness, but also the three great sonata masterpieces in C minor, A Major and B flat Major, with which Schubert looks far into the future and which have long since taken their place in the classical canon of piano sonata literature.

Contents: Sonata in G Major, Op. 78, D 894 • Sonata in C minor, D 958 • Sonata in A Major, D 959 • Sonata in B-flat Major, D 960.

  • February 09, 2008 Excellent editions!!

    I own all 3 Schubert Sonata volumes and agree with what everyone else has said about the exceptional quality of Henle. If you want to learn the Schubert sonatas, I can't recommend a better edition to own.

  • March 23, 2007 Henle does well in Schubert Edition

    The Schubert Piano Sonata II printed by Henle are easy on the eyes to read, uses good paper, has a nice table of contents, (with excerpts of each sonata) and most importantly, scholarly, with completion and publication dates, and details about autographs and manuscripts as an appendix for each Piano...

    Sonata.
