Great Performances: Schubert (Perenyi, Schiff) – Sonata in A minor Arpeggione D821

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The work consists of three movements. A typical performance takes just over 20 minutes.

  1. Allegro moderato
  2. Adagio in E major
  3. Allegretto in A major

The Sonata in A minor for Arpeggione and Piano, D. 821, was written by Franz Schubert in Vienna in November 1824. The sonata is the only substantial composition for the arpeggione (which was essentially a bowed guitar) which remains extant today. It belongs to the same period as theDeath and the Maiden Quartet, when Schubert was suffering from the advanced stages of syphilis and lapsing into increasingly frequent episodes of depression.
