Llŷr Williams piano

Schubert wrote his D-major Sonata 1825 at the spa town of Bad Gastein, and it became known as the ‘Gasteiner’. It was the second of his piano sonatas to be published. Its first movement has a fast and lively tempo, and the themes are built of scales and chords. The last movement is a technically challenging rondo. The late A-major Sonata, his second in this key, was written in 1828 and was Schubert’s penultimate sonata, completed only a few months before his death.
