Barry Douglas' new Schubert cd

Post by Rach3 » Mon May 14, 2018 10:19 am

Pianist Barry Douglas' new Chandos cd , Vol. 3 in his Schubert series, now for free listening awhile at Netherlands Radio 4 :

D.958 C minor Sonata ( # 19 ), D.780 (Op.94) 6 Moments musicaux, and 2 song transcriptions.I heard only the Sonata. I have heard many more recordings, performances of 959 and 960, few of 958 so I’ll defer to others’ opinions here. 958 is not a fav of mine. I have not heard Douglas’ earlier Schubert cd’s.

Fine pianist. One of the best Tchaikovsky Grand Sonatas, Op. 37 on records. I have all his RCA recordings on CD but nothing on Chandos - yet! I had the pleasure of preparing his piano for a concerto some years ago. A really nice chap.
