About the album

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.

Volume 1 uit een serie met pianowerken van Schubert, met prachtige dansen
Dit album bevat een prachtige selectie dansen voor piano van Schubert, werken die hij oorspronkelijk bedacht voor zijn vriendenkring, die tijdens de zogenaamde ‘Schubertiaden’ bijeenkwam. Dit programma toont Schubert als de grootmeester van de kleinere muzikale vormen, waarvoor hij tijdens zijn leven al zeer beroemd was. Deze werken horen tot het essentiële deel van Schuberts repertoire. Het is echter moeilijk, zo niet onmogelijk om ze in de huidige albumcatalogi te vinden.

Trudelies Leonhardt (jawel, de zus van Gustav Leonhardt!) brengt alle eenvoudige charmes en schoonheden van deze muziek tot leven met gezaghebbende uitvoeringen op een prachtige originele Weense fortepiano, rond 1815 gemaakt door Benignus Seidner, en in zijn volle glorie hersteld in 1987.

Composer(s)

Franz Schubert

Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer. Schubert already died before his 32nd birthday, but was extremely prolific during his lifetime. His output consists of over six hundred secular vocal works (mainly Lieder), seven complete symphonies, sacred music, operas, incidental music and a large body of chamber and piano music. Appreciation of his music while he was alive was limited to a relatively small circle of admirers in Vienna, but interest in his work increased significantly in the decades following his death. Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms and other 19th-century composers discovered and championed his works. Today, Schubert is ranked among the greatest composers of the late Classical and early Romantic eras and is one of the...

Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer. Schubert already died before his 32nd birthday, but was extremely prolific during his lifetime. His output consists of over six hundred secular vocal works (mainly Lieder), seven complete symphonies, sacred music, operas, incidental music and a large body of chamber and piano music. Appreciation of his music while he was alive was limited to a relatively small circle of admirers in Vienna, but interest in his work increased significantly in the decades following his death. Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms and other 19th-century composers discovered and championed his works. Today, Schubert is ranked among the greatest composers of the late Classical and early Romantic eras and is one of the most frequently performed composers of the early nineteenth century.
It was in the genre of the Lied that Schubert made his most indelible mark. Prior to Schubert's influence, Lieder tended toward a strophic, syllabic treatment of text, evoking the folksong qualities engendered by the stirrings of Romantic nationalism. Schubert expanded the potentialities of the genre like no other composer before.
