Schubert has been described as the last 'classical' and as the first 'romantic' composer, but it is really impossible to pin a meaningful label on him. He was, and still is, a very special case, a lonely figure in musical history, a dreamer who brought into music a degree of intimacy, despair, hope and disappointment previously unknown. Schubert was a sincere, shy and vulnerable man (though did not lack confidence in himself as an artist), and his personality is clearly reflected in his music.

Schubert found his voice early (the song 'Erlking' was written in 1815 when the composer was only eighteen) and produced an incredible mass of work. His productivity peaked in 1828, the last year of his life, with a staggering explosion of creativity unparalleled in musical history – the coda of Schubert’s life was humanly devastating and creatively triumphant. Schubert wrote more than six hundred songs and his experience of working with poetry was crucial to his art. He learned how to tell a story and create an atmosphere in the limited space of song, how to compress his material in the most direct and effective way. Schubert’s musical language and his perception of the world were poetic and many of his works could be seen as intimate diaries or private meditations. His music resonates with the belief of Novalis (a visionary, and one of the most influential personalities of German Romanticism) that poetry is the highest form of language.

Guillaume Coppola (piano)

Guillaume Coppola continues his original and personal journey with Schubert. Schubert treasures, not well known and rarely played. At first glance these short dances do not amount to much but actually they are the essence of Schubert in delicious miniatures. By contrast, the Sonata No. 5 in A minor D537 is a journey of 25 minutes in a maze of complex feelings and contradictory states of mind. A romantic drama contained in a three-movement architecture. Finally, the Hungarian melody completes Guillaume Coppola's programme in a very personal vision. A programme that is both rich and varied, showing opposite and complementary facets of Schubert.

Eldar Nebolsin (piano)

Acclaimed for his Naxos recordings of music by Chopin, Liszt, Dohnányi and Rachmaninov, Eldar Nebolsin here fulfils a heartfelt ambition to record important piano works by another great Romantic composer, Franz Schubert, for the label.

The passion and pathos of the two sonatas, with their song-like melodies and adventurous harmonies, set the scene for one of Schubert’s most powerful solo piano pieces, the Wanderer Fantasy, a work so technically demanding that Schubert himself is reported to have exclaimed ‘the devil may play it!’. Based on his popular song Der Wanderer, the Fantasy is virtually a four movement sonata in its own right and a path-breaking masterpiece of the piano literature.

“If you like your Schubert in high definition then this one's for you...Eldar Nebolsin here records Schubert for the first time, employing an alarmingly bold Technicolor Lisztian palette...He hurls himself at the piano in Sonata No 4 (producing a revelatory, pin-sharp staccato reading of the second movement along the way)...You wouldn't think he had anything left for the fiendish Wanderer Fantasy, but he was merely limbering up. Warn the neighbours.” The Observer, 22nd May 2011

“Nebolsin's grasp of structure, simplicity of approach with clear, natural phrasing, and the song-like purity of the recorded sound make this a very special Schubert disc...This is an account [of the Wanderer] to rank with the masterly (elderly) recording by Solomon, and that is saying something. The 'Wanderer' Fantasy is among the most compelling and coherent versions of recent years.” Classic FM Magazine, July 2011 *****

“He is undaunted by the immense demands of the Wanderer in a performance of considerable power that revels in the granite choral writing and culminates in a fugue of almost bludgeoning power.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2011

“Nebolsin makes things harder for himself by adopting a tempo that's on the steady side, but his performance is admirably restrained and eloquent. He gives a beautiful account of the more popular and lurical Sonata No. 13 in A major, too, producing playing of effortless warmth and musicianship....he is clearly a pianist to watch, and the two Sonatas are really impressive.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2011 ****
