Schubert: Piano Sonatas Nos.16 & 17, D845 & D850, ,

This volume from Praga's critically-acclaimed Richter Edition series features an audiophile SACD remastering of the great Russian pianist playing sonatas by Schubert. On this album containing studio recordings from 1956, Sviatoslav Richter presents a juxtaposition of Schubert's sixteenth and seventeenth sonatas, also known as the first and second Grande Sonates for pianoforte. The Piano Sonata No.16 D845 is a melancholic and intimate, while the Piano Sonata No.17 D850 sparkles with light and joy.
