Schubert himself found his own Wanderer Fantasy too difficult to perform, and said of it ‘the devil may play it’. In four movements, played without a break, it is based on the theme of his song ‘The Wanderer’, which is repeated in different forms at the start of each movement. The ‘little’ A-major Sonata is so-called to distinguish it from the 1828 work performed in Programme 3, while this Sonata in A minor, the second of three sonatas Schubert wrote in this key, was composed in 1823, the same year as the song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin. The Four Impromtus D 899 are lyrical and dance-like.
