Piano Works Vol 1

Trudelies Leonhardt

GLO 5151 - 8711525515109

Information GreatBrittain Germany

A wonderful selection of Dances for piano by Schubert, works he originally conceived for his circle of friends who gathered for the so-called "Schubertiads". This program shows Schubert as the grand master of the smaller musical forms, for which he was already famous during his lifetime. This is essential repertory of Schubert, but difficult, if not impossible, to find on recordings. 

Trudelies Leonhardt (yes, she is Gustav Leonhardt's sister!) brings all the simple charms and beauties of this music to life with authoritative performances of these works on a beautiful original Viennese fortepiano, built around 1815 by Benignus Seidner and re- stored to its full glory in 1987.
